Good Riddance to "The Family": A Response to David Popenoe.
Stacey, Judith
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p545-47 Aug 1993
Responds to previous article by Popenoe on American family decline from 1960 through 1990. Notes that, also the author agrees with Popenoe's view that the family is in decline, she and Popenoe conceptualize the family in fundamentally incompatible ways. Asserts that anthropological and historical studies suggest that family is not an institution but an ideological, symbolic construct. (NB)
