"Drawing on his most seminal thinking, this book presents Popenoe's observations and interpretations of the great family debate. The book includes his widely cited, now classic article "American Family Decline, 1960-1990: A Review and Appraisal" as well as his path-breaking "The Evolution of Marriage and the Problem of Stepfamilies" and the influential "Can the Nuclear Family be Revived?" The writings in this book share a broad cultural, historical, and inter-disciplinary perspective. They are accessible not only to the family scholar and the family professional but to the general reader who wishes to know more about one of the truly important social issues of our time."--BOOK JACKET
Families without fathers : fathers, marriage and children in American society by David Popenoe ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Synopsis: The American family is changing. Divorce, single parents, and stepfamilies are redefining the ways we live together and raise our children. Many "experts" feel these seemingly inevitable changes should be celebrated; they claim that the "new" families, which often lack a strong father, are actually healthier than traditional two-parent families-or, at the very least, do children no harm. But as David Popenoe shows in Families Without Fathers this optimistic view is severely misguided. Examining evidence from social and behavioral science, history, and evolutionary biology, Popenoe shows why fathers today are deserting their families in record numbers. The disintegration of the child-centered, two parent family-especially in the inner cities, where as many as two in three children are growing up without their fathers-and the weakening commitment of fathers to their children that more and more follows divorce, are central causes of many of our worst individual and social problems. Juvenile delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancy, welfare dependency, and child poverty can be directly traced to fathers lack of involvement in their childrens lives. Our situation will only get worse, Popenoe warns, unless men are willing to renew their commitment to their marriages and to their children. Yet he is not just an alarmist. He suggests concrete policies, and new ways of thinking and acting that will help all fathers improve their marriages and family lives, and tells us what we as individuals and as a society can do to support and strengthen the most important thing a man can do
Private pleasure, public plight : urban development, suburban sprawl, and the decline of community by David Popenoe ( Book )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a social and cultural analysis of community life in metropolitan areas of three nations - the United States, Sweden, and England. The author focuses on how environment and culture interact to shape human behavior. Despite their many similarities, the three societies offer remarkably contrasting urban forms, and thus provide a unique opportunity for comparative research. The findings suggest goals for urban community development in America that can help regain a sense of human scale and establish more meaningful face-to-face contact among urban dwellers."--BOOK JACKET

"Humans are born without any culture. For virtually anyone the process of socialization begins with the family and continues through other social agents such as school, peer goups and mass media. The popularity of reality television shows that offer 'extreme makeovers' [of persons] is highlighted in this lesson as an example of the desire to fit in"--Container
Family matters ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The traditional or nuclear family of the 1950s and 1960s is what most of us think of when asked to define "family." But the idea that there is a typical family is perhaps little more than a myth. This lesson considers the diversity of family forms that exist today and cultural shifts that are changing the definition of "family." You will meet the Scott-Chung family and a lesbian couple who discuss their decision to start a family

"Conflicting views about sexuality permeate American culture. These conflicts play out in a variety of ways, from how we perceive sexually explicit materials to how we legislate on the issue of abortion. This lesson looks at the concept of sexuality and explores different attitudes towards sexuality education, abortion and sexual orientation. We meet Renee Walker (BACHE), a concerned mother who objected to the sexuality education program (CryBabies) at her son's middle school because she believed the program was biased."
