Race and Family is a textbook that introduces students to key concepts through a structural lens. Rather than examining each racial/ethnic group in isolation like many race and family textbooks, Race and Family illustrates overarching structural factors that affect all families, such as economic factors, demographic factors, and gender relations.
Roberta L. Coles is professor of sociology at Marquette University. She specializes in the study of family and is the author of The Best Kept Secret: Single Black Fathers and coeditor of The Myth of the Missing Black Father.
