The Author won the Washington Governor's Writers Award in 1989 for this book. "This intelligent synthesis takes careful note of class, race, gender, and region, to illuminate the differing American "family systems" that emerged during the last three centuries. The analysis considers the impact of economic, social, political, and ideological transformations upon the family, itself also an agent of change. Emphasizing both the complexity and the diversity of her subject, Coontz concludes that every family system has always incorporated unresolved tensions."
