Tackling issues relevant to family life today, this authoritative Companion shows why studying social change in families is fundamental for understanding the transformations in individual and social life, across the globe. This book: contains original essays by expert contributors on a wide range of topics relating to the sociology of families; includes coverage of social inequality, parenting practices, children's work, the changing patterns of citizenship, and multi-cultural families; gives special attention to European and North American examples; discusses previously neglected groups, including immigrant families and gays and lesbians; and, explores how revolutionary changes in aging, longevity, and sexual behavior have radically affected the experience of different generations, and the relationships between them.
