Canadian Families: Diversity, Conflict and Change, Fourth Edition is a contributed text that offers a thematic or critical exploration of families and examines the themes, contradictions and conflicts surrounding the many incarnations of the family unit. It begins with historical contexts and examines contemporary issues as they relate to gender, race, class, age, economics, sexual orientation, and violence. The family and all of its definitions are explored from a progressive and feminist approach.
Ann Duffy is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Labour Studies at Brock University; she also teaches Women's Studies.
