"Should We Worry about Family Change? unpacks the current controversies and larger issues surrounding family change. Some of the topics discussed include the nature of family change, its impact on the lives of women, and the need for amendment to our social policies and laws to reflect today's diverse family patterns. Taking into account the historical development of the family and the social policies that have attempted to meet familial concerns, Jane Lewis comments on such pivotal topics as absent fathers, the increasing economic independence of women, and the effects of the rise of cohabitation." "Lewis explores various policy options that have the potential to promote family well-being and responsibility while expanding the choices available to men and women in regard to their contributions to family life. Drawing on a wide range of literature, cross-national data, and policy approaches, Lewis engages her readers in a highly public and timely debate."--Jacket.
