The proliferation of divorces and remarriages at the end of the 20th century has made the concept of the stepfamily a common one in today's society. In the U.S., for example, half of all marriages are remarriages for one or both partners, and nearly one-third of the children in the U.S. will spend some time living in a stepparent household before they reach adulthood. Relationships within these blended families have their own characteristics, and much is known about their development. Despite advances in both research and clinical interventions, however, there has been little synthesis of knowledge beneficial to both investigators and practitioners. Stepfamily Relationships: Development, Dynamics, and Interventions offers what has so far been missing in the field - a comprehensive, multidisciplinary text that provides a state-of-the-art look at this important facet of family study. This volume examines the variety of relationships within step-households as well as between households, focusing on internal family dynamics while maintaining a cultural and historical viewpoint. The diversity and complexity of families is emphasized throughout, including gay and lesbian stepfamilies, stepfamilies of varying racial and ethnic backgrounds, and stepfamilies across the life course. It will be a welcome text and reference for all those who study and work with stepfamilies and families in general.

Overview: 007-086413-2 /Softcover / 448 pp/ Copyright 2001, (11,2000) / ($41.95)Revised to ensure up-to-date coverage of key issues in accordance with its high academic reputation while introducing a new, reader-friendly design, Families: Changing Trends in Canada has always been a widely adopted text for the first course in Sociology of the Family. Maureen Baker's aim as general editor has been to create a Canadian textbook in family studies for post-secondary students, which incorporates an interdisciplinary, historical, comparative and mainly structural perspective, but which is inclusive of various theoretical perspectives. The newly added pedagogical elements will engage students taking the course at universities and community colleges.The fourth edition of Families reflects the evolving nature of the family by paying increased attention to gay, lesbian and multicultural issues. It includes updated statistics and discussion of recent legal reforms, providing students with background on three censuses and other demographic surveys, new studies in social history, recent legal debate, and the growing focus on cultural variations in families. The fourth edition also offers new theoretical approaches that incorporate poststructuralist and feminist theory in order to help students understand how family, gender relations and personal life have been influenced by "post-industrial" or "post-modern" society. Most contributors are sociologists but several have formal qualifications or a research background in psychology, education, women's studies, history and social policy. The result is a text that shows that family life in Canada, as elsewhere, is in a constant state of change.
