[Marriages & families] Marriages and families: intimacy, diversity, and strengths / David H. Olson, John DeFrain, Linda Skogrand.—7th ed. p. cm. Previously published under title: Marriages & families. Summary: “Our goal in writing Marriages and Families: Intimacy, Diversity, and Strengths has been to provide students with information about marriage and family relationships that will help them move toward Mace’s goal. We have tried to make the concepts and ideas presented in this book useful and meaningful so students will be able to apply them to their own lives. We hope to help students integrate intellectual ideas and personal experiences, thereby enriching both. Although the text deals with some complex ideas and materials, it is written in a style that is accessible to students new to the field of family studies and to those wanting to learn more about intimate relationships.
