MEDIA REVIEWS
"This monograph is an attempt to appraise critically the research literature on the black family, In essence, the author's argument is that much of what passes for reality in this area is actually myth, i.e., an ethnocentric interpretation of the facts of black family life...it is useful to see the assumptions of a broad range of studies brought into question....This book contains an excellent bibliography. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate libraries with strong holdings in the area of family studies."-Choice
"Dr. Engram promises to assess the validity of the most salient propositions in the field of family study regarding the Afro-American family in the U.S.: to examine the relationships of the propositions to emerging perspectives in the field; and to assess the quality of the research that the propositions have generated. Via skillful analysis, she delivers. Few writers have been so intrepid to attempt such an arduous responsibility and succeed."-Phylon
