Book Description

The field of family studies has recently benefited from an injection of innovative research from other areas of sociology as well as from other disciplines, particularly demography and psychology. Changing Families: Relationships in Context is the first family textbook, whether Canadian or American, to integrate this new body of knowledge—which also includes additional theoretical perspectives—in such a comprehensive manner.

Product Details

Product Description


"I have chosen Changing Families Relationships in Context by Anne-Marie Ambert published by Pearson because it is a lot more comprehensive than others in its category.” (Author’s emphasis)

-Adenike Yesufu, Grant MacEwan University


“[The strengths of the text are the] writing style, tackling difficult topics such as poverty, and addressing the importance of other social institutions such as neighbourhoods and peer groups.”

-Professor, Grant MacEwan University


“It [the text] offered the best Canadian content and the most comprehensive coverage of theories and topics related to families. The writing style was also engaging but challenging enough for undergraduate students.”

--Terry Murphy, College of the North Atlantic


“What sets this family text apart from many others is its focus on Canadian issues, the range of topics covered, and its excellent survey of recent trends in Canadian society. This next edition will be a welcome addition to my courses.”

--Denis Wall, University of Toronto (Scarborough)


“The most important reasons to prompt me to adopt Ambert’s text concerned the opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to the evaluation of opinions and findings; that students could adequately use concepts from the text to demonstrate the appropriate techniques of effective collaboration during discussion periods on line; most importantly that they could evaluate the significance of the sociological process and express through writing the effects of different kinds of socialization experiences on people’s development; and finally that they could assess future relationship trends.”

--Penny Poole, Fanshawe College
