The family patterns seen in recent decades-cohabitation, divorce, nonmarital childbearing, same-sex marriage and childrearing-can seem like radical changes from the past.

But upon closer examination, many are consistent with broader trends that have been going on for centuries.

Sociology of Families: Change, Continuity, and Diversity considers this tension between change and continuity, situating families in a social, historical, and economic context, and emphasizing how these contexts create family diversity and inequality.

By incorporating diverse family structures into each chapter, author Teresa Ciabattari has written a text that challenges idealized assumptions about how families should be, and instead explores the complex realities of how families actually are.
