Race and Family: A Structural Approach (Hardcover)
The second edition of Race and Family maintains the book's distinctive feature--its structural lens--while featuring new material throughout. Race and Family focuses on demographic, economic, and historical-legal factors that impact all families, though often disparately. The text also includes separate chapters focusing on the histories and diversity within each major racial-ethnic group.
Roberta L. Coles is professor of sociology at Marquette University. She specializes in the study of family and is the author of The Best Kept Secret: Single Black Fathers and coeditor of The Myth of the Missing Black Father.
