Family, self, and society : toward a new agenda for family research by Philip A Cowan( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any agenda for family research in the 1990s must take seriously a contextual approach to the study of family relationships. The editors and contributors to this volume believe that the richness in family studies over the next decade will come from considering the diversity of family forms -- different ethnic groups and cultures, different stages of family life, as well as different historical cohorts. Their goal is to make more explicit how we think about families in order to study them and understand them. To illustrate the need for diversity in family studies, examples are presented from new and old families, majority and minority families, American and Japanese families, and intact and divorcing families. This variety is intended to push the limits of current thinking, not only for researchers but also for all who are struggling to live with and work with families in a time when family life is valued but fragmented and relatively unsupported by society's institutions. Students and researchers interested in family development from the viewpoint of any of the social sciences will find this book of value

Second generation south Asians: Dating, mating and becoming American by Rifat Anjum Salam( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study uses a focus on dating and marriage strategies and choices to reveal the complex dilemmas and negotiations, variability and autonomy in the second generation experience. Through the use of qualitative data from interviews and employing a life course approach emphasizing the subjective experience of life choices, three life pathways emerged, the traditional pathway, the independence pathway and the ethnic rebellion pathway, showing this complexity and variability. Each of these pathways revealed different types of autonomy and negotiations of gender expectations, demonstrating the influence of childhood socialization combined with social structural and personal forces in shaping the trajectories individuals take. The social class privilege, family and community resources and model minority status of this second generation cohort resulted both in enhanced career opportunities and a diversity of life choices. Thus, this study demonstrates that the experiences of the second generation show great variability and that the structural circumstances of immigrants influence not just their economic attainment but their personal life choices as well
