The new edition will be not only a valuable text but a reference source for students and scholars as they continue their study of the family and marriage. Dr. James White is now the lead author. Dr. White's current research interests are in the areas of cohabitation, family structure and early childhood outcomes, and the concept of time in developmental studies.
