The Changing Landscape of Work and Family in the American Middle Class explores the dynamics of the modern American family and how they have adapted to the changing economy and culture. Contributors from a variety of disciplines redefine the concept of the 'model American family' and provide well-researched insight into what the new standards for judging family life and its functionality will be.
