All Our Families, a project of the Berkeley Forum on the Family, takes a hard look at contemporary families. The book challenges the conventional wisdom that American families are disintegrating. Its essays argue that comparing today's families to an imagined typical family of the past--stable, middle class, working father, stay-at-home mother, and two or three children--is dishonest and misleading. Most American families are not, and never were like that. In contrast, All Our Families considers seriously all of today's types of families, not just the "ideal" ones or the "failures." In this second edition, the editors have revised existing chapters and added three new chapters on inter-racial families, immigrant families, and extended families.
