Books Info:

Sourcebook of Family Theory and Research free pdf Sponsored by the National Council on Family Relations, the Sourcebook of Family Theory and Research is the definitive reference work on theory and methods for family scholars and students around the world. This volume provides a diverse, eclectic, and paradoxically mature approach to theorizing, and demonstrates how the development of theory is crucial to the future of family research. The Sourcebook reflects an interactive approach that focuses on the process of theory building and designing research, thereby engaging readers in "doing" theory rather than simply reading about it. An accompanying Web site, http://www.sagepub.com//bengtson, offers additional participation and interaction in the process of doing theory and making science. The Sourcebook is an excellent addition to any academic library. It is an authoritative reference for scholars and researchers in Human Development and Family Studies, Sociology, Social Work, and Psychology. In addition, the Sourcebook can also be used in graduate courses on family theory and methodology.
