Sponsored by the National Council on Family Relations, the Sourcebook of Family Theory and Research is the definitive reference work on theory and methods for family scholars and students around the world. This volume provides a diverse, eclectic, and paradoxically mature approach to theorizing, and demonstrates how the development of theory is crucial to the future of family research.

The Sourcebook reflects an interactive approach that focuses on the process of theory building and designing research, thereby engaging readers in "doing" theory rather than simply reading about it. An accompanying Web site, http:/www.sagepub.com/bengtson, offers additional participation and interaction in the process of doing theory and making science.

The Sourcebook is an excellent addition to any academic library. It is an authoritative reference for scholars and researchers in Human Development and Family Studies, Sociology, Social Work, and Psychology. In addition, the Sourcebook can also be used in graduate courses on family theory and methodology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This comprehensive text provides a rich source of perspectives on theorising about the family for scholars, researchers, and students. Another of the book's strengths is the emphasis on multimethod approaches in family research. The book covers an impressive range of topics and issues - marital happiness, adjustment of children in divorce marriages, gay marriage, sibling ties, ethnic families of colour, stepfamilies, aggression culture, work and family, religion, and social policy, to name a few. In summary, this superb volume is highly recommended and amply reflects the many contemporary perspectives on the family." -Philip Siebler, Monash University, Victoria
-- Philip Siebler * Journal of Family Studies *
"The Sourcebook of Family Theory & Research provides an abundance of information relevant for training and educating couple and family counselors." -- Aaron H. Oberman * The Family Journal *
