Families: A Sociological Perspective is an exciting new text from David Newman that successfully connects to students’ personal lives while showing how sociologists understand and explain families. It is not only informative in terms of current sociological knowledge of families, but meaningful in terms of contemporary family debates and applicable to students’ own family experiences. "What Does it All Mean?", "Going Global", and "See for Yourself" sections appear throughout the text allowing students to think and actively "do" sociology like sociologists to explore theoretical concepts to better understand their own family lives as well as those of others.
