Gender, Family and Society

by Faith Robertson Elliot

Gender, Family and Society Synopsis

Contemporary struggles over the ordering of sexual and parental relationships take place in the context of mass unemployment, ethnic antagonism, population ageing, a growing awareness of the pervasiveness of violence and sexual abuse in intimate relationships and the eruption of AIDS as a major health crisis. Gender, Family and Society seeks to provide a sociological understanding of the way in which these key aspects of contemporary social life shape, and are shaped by, gender and family structures.

Gender, Family and Society Press Reviews
