Now in its third edition, Family Matters offers an enriched discussion on a variety of substantive factors affecting Canadian families across a life course. Adopting a feminist sociological approach throughout, this popular textbook explores family structures and functions through a critical, gendered lens and individually examines how issues related to gender, social change, social policy, and poverty influence family life.

A leading name in sociology, Barbara A. Mitchell takes a closer look at LAT partnerships and polyamorous relationships, and features additional material on skipped generation families, disability in families, participatory research methods, parent-child relationships, and the impact of communication technologies. Approachable and concise, Family Matters is the perfect resource for students enrolled in half-year, introductory, or advanced level courses in family sociology and gender studies.

About the Author:

Barbara A. Mitchell is Professor of Sociology at Simon Fraser University, jointly appointed in the Department of Gerontology.
