The Social History of the American Family: An Encyclopedia

Alternative Titles
Social history of the American family
Description

The four volumes of The Social History of the American Family explore the vital role of the family as the fundamental social unit across the span of American history. Experiences of family life shape so much of an individual's development and identity, yet the patterns of family structure, family life, and family transition vary across time, space, and socioeconomic contexts. Both the definition of who or what counts as family and representations of the “ideal” family have changed over time to reflect changing mores, changing living standards and lifestyles, and increased levels of social heterogeneity.

This balanced academic work chronicles the social, cultural, economic, and political aspects of American families from the colonial period to the present. Key themes include families and culture (including mass media), families and religion, families and the economy, families and social issues, families and social stratification and conflict, family structures (including marriage and divorce, gender roles, parenting and children, and mixed and non-modal family forms), and family law and policy.

Features: Approximately 600 articles, richly illustrated with historical photographs and color photos in the digital edition, provide historical context for students.; A collection of primary source documents demonstrate themes across time.; The signed articles, with cross references and Further Readings, are accompanied by a Reader's Guide, Chronology of American Families, Resource Guide, Glossary, and thorough index.

Key Themes: Families and Culture; Families and Experts; Families and Religion; Families and Social Change; Families and Social Issues/Problems/Crises; Families and Social Media; Families and Social Stratification/Social Class; Families and Technology; Families and the Economy; Families in America; Families in Mass Media; Families, Family Life, Social Identities; Family Advocates and Organizations; Family Law and Family Policy; Family Theories; History of American Families.

Edited by Marilyn J. Coleman & Lawrence H. Ganong.
