This updated edition brings the study of the family into the era of Barack Obama. A hallmark of Families in Context remains the well-researched, data-driven nature of the text. Beyond thoroughly updated statistics, a new chapter explores the family and public issues under the administration of George W. Bush and now under the leadership of Obama. Another new essay explores questions of bias in the study of the family, in public debates, and in textbooks. These new chapters are ideal for spurring classroom discussion or student papers.
