This accessible introductory text provides students who are encountering the sociology of the family for the first time with a systematic way of thinking about the subject based on a core set of analytical questions. It blends theory with empirical examples drawn from all over the world, thus offering valuable insights into the differences and commonalities between families in quite diverse social and cultural contexts.
