Book: The Family

My book, The Family: Diversity, Inequality, and Social Change, is out from W. W. Norton. Details about the book — contents, features, and supporting materials — including how to order exam copies, and how to contact a Norton representative, are available here.

If you are an instructor who is using or considering the book I invite you to join this Facebook group for a teaching discussion.

From the publisher’s description:

Learn the facts and debunk the fictions about contemporary families. Looking at modern families through the context of diversity, inequality, and social change, blogger and demographer Philip N. Cohen brings a fresh approach to the sociological study of family life. The text features a wealth of original, interactive graphics of contemporary family trends and encourages students to be savvy consumers of media. Integrated workshops based on activities from Cohen’s undergraduate course give students the opportunity to apply what they learn in the book to their own lives.
