Focusing on insights from scholars from a broad range of disciplines in addition to sociology, this text explores both the structural features of society that shape families and the everyday personal experiences of individual family members--as well as the interplay between the two. The book provides readers with insights about the political character of families by examining both the public policy debates that surround families and the tensions and negotiations that occur within families.
