Family Matters article

April 2002


One of the Australian Institute of Family Studies' series of reviews on recently released family-related books.  

There can be little debate that changes are occurring in contemporary families. But are these a sign of the disintegration of the family, and a symptom of moral collapse? Or do they signal constructive attempts by people to build families that work in the new, complex world in which we live? The author discusses an interesting new publication that takes up these issues, the discussion paper by Pamela Kinnear, 'New families for changing times, disintegration of the family' (Australia Institute, 2002).
