This is an extremely important book. Most books treat the family as static: fixed in a moment of time. This book corrects this misleading picture; the family and its members are changing all the time in response to global, economic and cultural forces. Almost uniquely, this text lets us understand how family and gender patterns are changing, and where things might be heading. This book will educate educators as well as students. It should change the way family classes are taught. -- Dr. Pepper Schwartz, professor of sociology, University of Washington; author of The Normal Bar
A significant sociological study of the process of change in domestic gender relations and, through evidence of reciprocal causality, in the larger social sphere....The book is important for all gender scholors across the social sciences and activists who seek to make and understand the processes of large-scale social change. * Book Review Digest *
