Public and Private Families: An Introduction https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260813274.jpeg 9 9781260813272 Public and Private Families: An Introduction discusses the meaning of family, how it has evolved and continues to evolve, from both a private and public perspective. Andrew Cherlin guides students through an exploration of the history of families around the world in a way that prompts critical and sociological thinking. Public and Private Families: An Introduction defines the private family as our personal space, where we live most of our personal lives. Contrastingly, the public family is where we deal with broader societal issues and challenges. Cherlin invites students to take a close look at and assessment of gender, race, ethnicity and social class. Students are simultaneously prompted to explore the impact society, the workplace and public policy have on the family and family structures. The ninth edition of Public and Private Families: An Introduction includes expanded research and discussion on LGBTQ family life, and it also includes a new section on online matchmaking and commitment.
