The Filipino Family (3rd Ed)
|Author||Belen T. G. Medina|
This book is a pioneering work on the sociology of the Filipino family and marriage. It provides an analytical perspective of the internal dynamics and external relationhips of the Filipino family.
The wide range of topics covered, including the structure and functions of the family and kin group, courtship and mate selection, love and sex, husband and wife roles, marital power and decision-making, marital adjustment and conflict, parenting, and the role of the aged, provides the reader a comprehensive understanding of the traditional as well as the changing nature of the Filipino family. The book has made extensive use of existing literature from the earliest to the most recent, and is not only important as a sociology textbook or reference in such courses as home economics, social work, education,and other social science, but is also useful to the general public for a better awareness and understanding of the family they live in.
Medina is a Professor at the UP Department of Sociology.
