Davis, Lenwood G., Comp.; Sims, Janet, Comp.
The works cited in this annotated bibliography cover historical and contemporary aspects of the black family. Distinctions between literature of a positive and negative nature are made and the majority of the literature cited is evaluated as being good, fair, or excellent. Autobiographies are excluded. The emphasis is on social science works published roughly from 1965 to the present. Arrangement is: (1) in chapters by form of literature (book, article, dissertation); (2) by subject subheading; and (3) alphabetically by author. Subject subheadings include socioeconomic and socio-cultural status, slavery, religion, occupations, education, health, sex roles, places of residence, and different types of extended families. Author and selective key word subject indexes are included. (KR)
