« Using up-to-date research on topics of paramount importance to all Canadians, Canadian Families Today examines such issues as the life experiences of Canada’s elderly, the gendered nature of paid and unpaid work in the family economy, the marginalization of individuals who differ from the heterosexual norm, the impact of disability on families, and the broader social issues, such as violence and public policy, that are endemic to the contemporary family. » (quatrième de couverture)
