* traces the sociology of the family from its origins in the anthropological study of kinship in the late nineteenth century
* includes examples of early twentieth century studies on family relations, which propose practical solutions to the problems of domestic breakdown and violence and the emergence of the single parent family
* illustrates the development of modern family studies with its emphasis on particular family problems and roles.
