Following the success of its best-selling predecessors, the Fourth Edition of Harriette Pipes McAdoo's Black Families retains several now classic contributions while including updated versions of earlier chapters and many entirely new chapters. The goal through each revision of this core text has been to compile a book that focuses on positive dimensions of African American families. The book remains the most complete assessment of black families available in both depth and breadth of coverage. Cross-disciplinary in nature, the book boasts contributions from such fields as family studies, anthropology, education, psychology, social work, and public policy.

Family Life in Black America

Most studies of Black families have had a `problem focus', offering a narrow view of important issues such as out-of-wedlock births, single-parent families and childhood poverty. Family Life in Black America moves away from this negative perspective and instead deals with a wide range of issues including sexuality, procreation, infancy, adulthood, adolescence, cohabitation, parenting, grandparenting and ageing. A fresh aspect of this book is the amount of diversity it reveals within black families and the forces that shape, limit and enhance them.

"The first half of Tapestry consists of a historical overview of African Americans in southeastern Connecticut from 1680 to 1865. The authors focus on the arrival of blacks in Connecticut, the African-American family, and the role played by African Americans in the Revolutionary and Civil wars. Much of the action takes place in the towns of Groton, East Haddam, New London, Chatham, and Hebron. In the second part of the volume, Dr. Rose and Mrs. Brown produce, as illustrations, genealogical sketches of the following African-American families: Beman, Boham, Bush, Freeman, Hallan, Hyde, Jacklin, Jackson, Lathrop, Magira, Mason, Moody, Peters, Quash, Rogers, and Wright. While readers will discover information in a number of these genealogies that is repeated in Brown and Rose's Black Roots in Southeastern Connecticut, 1650-1900, researchers should check the accounts in Tapestry for embellishments"--Publisher website (December 2008).
