The Canadian Family in Crisis
by John F. Conway
The Canadian Family in Crisis gives the reader an overview of the rapidly changing nature of family life in Canada. This fifth edition includes data from the most recent Canadian census.
In this book, sociology professor John F. Conway looks at families past, present and future and examines the changing nature of family. Figures from the first decade of the new millennium tell us that one marriage in two may well end in divorce. Conway considers the implications of divorce, the impact of social changes on men, women and children, and suggests how these issues might be better addressed through family policy. The new edition addresses the harsh new reality facing Canadian families, especially those most vulnerable as a result of the crisis of the family.
The Canadian Family in Crisis is the first book to examine the drastic changes in the Canadian family over the last thirty years.
