Lawrence Erlbaum Associates | December 1, 2003 | English | ISBN: 080584600X | 304 pages | PDF | 1003 KB

Interdisciplinary in nature, the volume brings together contributors from the fields of psychology, social work, sociology, demography, economics, human development and family studies, and public policy.
