This unique anthology contains readings that represent three major perspectives--conservative, centrist, liberal/feminist--on 16 important and controversial marriage and family-related topics. Section introductions put the articles in context and "critical thinking" questions challenge the authors' theoretical position, usage of data, consistency, etc. --helping readers to sort intelligently through the issues and perspectives and to develop informed opinions. Contains articles from several political and ideological positions on such topics as family values, gender roles, cohabitation, parenting, divorce, and stepfamilies. Features two original, theoretical chapters that characterize the "family wars" and their consequences in everyday life. For anyone interested in marriage/family issues from a variety of perspectives.
