Embattled Paradise by Arlene S. Skolnick

Book Description

Was there really a golden age of the family in the 1950s--or ever? This penetrating history of the American family mounts a withering criticism of the "culture of nostalgia" that clouds current debate and offers a plan for reconstituting the American family dream.

All Our Families by Arlene S. Skolnick All Our Families, Paperback (November 2002)

This text challenges the conventional wisdom that American families are disintegrating. It argues that comparing modern families to an imagined typical family of the past is dishonest and misleading. Most American families are not, and never were, like that.
