Natalia Sarkisian is Associate Professor of Sociology at Boston College. Her interests include family sociology, race, gender, and class, aging and the life course, and quantitative methods. Her research, published in Social Forces, American Sociological Review, the Journal of Marriage and Family, Contexts, and Family Relations, examines variation in kin and community ties by race/ethnicity, gender, age, and marital status, and explores the structural circumstances and cultural values that may account for this variation.

Naomi Gerstel is Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her most recent articles have examined the ways class and gender shape work hours, effects of class, race, marriage, and women’s employment on families and caregiving, labor union policies, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book examines how hegemonic values prevail in discourse about family values and the Eurocentric middle class ideal influences our perception and leads to policy decisions, which perpetuate stereotypes and power imbalances. A helpful resource for courses in human communication studies (particularly family communication) and gender studies.
