What can be done to help rebuild western families?
The problem of non-formation and disintegration of families in the western world has been serious since the beginnings of the 1960's. A number of social changes have occurred which have had a destructive effect on the family. The matter has progressed to the point where it has become a threat to the civilization and democratic society. For years scholars like Moynihan have sought to build stronger social protection for the families to no avail. Only in the mid-1990's did society begin to grapple with this problem.

Ralph Segalman's book looks beyond the reasons for family breakdown in the West and proposes many things that can be done to help rebuild western families. These items include revamping federal and local programs, constructive tax policy, marriage and divorce laws, public school programs, community initiatives, foster care and adoption strategies, professional training programs, and parenting skills.

RALPH SEGALMAN is Professor of Sociology Emeritus from California State University at Northridge. He is author of several books including Dynamics of Social Behavior and Development, Poverty in America, and The Swiss Way of Welfare.
