About the Book: 

The Fourth Edition of James M. White, David M. Klein, and Todd F. Martin’s best-selling Family Theories: An Introduction offers a thorough and accessible approach to the most current perspectives in family theory. Rich in detail yet exceptionally concise, the text's analytical structure draws from such major theoretical frameworks as social exchange and choice, symbolic-interaction, family life course development, systems, conflict, feminism, and ecology to explain variation in families. Thoroughly updated, this new edition helps readers connect theory to everyday life.
