This collection surveys the influence of major events and social trends on the configuration of the contemporary American family. Several articles examine the changes for families, across economic levels, occasioned by unemployment, escalating health care costs, and a general anxiety over their economic future. The new structures of some ethnic families reveal some of the most dynamic transformations in family life today.
