She addresses nine topics central and critical to family sociology and provided thoughtful articles from diverse perspectives for each, from adolescent childbearing to the construction of family policy. This volume of readings is where the students are. It could enrich any instructor's approach to the burning questions in the field of family sociology." Dana Vannoy, University of Cincinnati
