The Sky Is Falling, but Popenoe's Analysis Won't Help Us Do Anything about It.
Cowan, Philip A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p548-53 Aug 1993
Responds to previous article by Popenoe on American family decline from 1960 through 1990. Argues that it is possible to reject Popenoe's causal analysis but to accept his conclusion that there is much troubling in the American family. Considers what can be done to reduce prevalence of family distress and increase adaptive functioning of contemporary families. (NB)
