Public & Private Families: An Introduction


Nationally recognized for its sound scholarship and balanced approach and written by one of the leading authorities in the field, this text examines the family through two lenses: the familiar private family in which we live most of our personal lives, and the Public family in which we, as adults, deal with broader societal issues such as the care of the elderly, the increase in divorce, and childbearing outside of marriage. The book looks at intimate personal concerns, such as whether to marry, as well as societal concerns, such as governmental policies that affect families. Distinctive chapters - Chapter 9, Children and Parents; Chapter 10, The Elderly and Their Families; and Chapter 14, The Family, the State and Social Policy - examine issues of great current interest, such as income assistance to poor families, the effects of out-of-home childcare, and the costs of the Social Security and Medicare programs.
Abstract
As the title suggests, "Public and Private Families: An Introduction," seventh edition, discusses the family in two senses: the private family, in which we live most of our personal lives, and the Public family, in which we, as adults, deal with broader societal issues such as the care of the frail elderly, the increase in divorce, and childbearing outside of marriage. The book examines intimate personal concerns, such as whether to marry, as well as societal concerns, such as governmental policies that affect families. Distinctive chapters examine contemporary issues such as income assistance to poor families, the effects of out-of-home childcare, and the costs of Social Security and Medicare programs. A companion reader to this textbook, "Public and Private Families: A Reader," seventh edition, with 14 same-named chapters, has 34 readings from both the popular press and academic journals.
