Product Overview

"African Families in the Twenty-First Century" explores the idea that the family is the basic unit of society and an enduring multifunctional institution in Africa. The functions and structures of African families, as well as the multiple roles played by Africa''s women, are undergoing structural changes. The ways in which education, employment, and current economic conditions reshape these complex roles are immense.The challenges facing African families and their members-such as globalization, war, poverty, economic restructuring, reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, harmful traditional practices, aging, and care and support of the elderly-have magnified due to a series of economic, social, political, religious, ecological, and other related factors.Author Aderanti Adepoju explores the vulnerability and resilience of African families in the face of these crises and challenges. He also looks at the opportunities facing African families in the new millennium. Because of the importance of African families to the development process, "African Families in the Twenty-First Century" is essential reading for planners, policy makers, activists, academics, and students.
