Editorial Review:

Product Description:
The book is organized into an introduction and five subsequent parts with 13 chapters overall. The introduction provides a brief overview of the continuity and changes in the patrilineal culture of the current Korean family. Part I, Traditional Korean Families, presents a historical analysis of the family/kinship system and women s life during the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasties. Part II, Family and Society, includes two chapters on changes in the family population and families with the concept of compressed modernity , and examines family issues at the macro level. Part III, Family, Change, and Space, includes three chapters on family life among the rural, urban, and lower classes based on intensive qualitative research. Part IV, Family and Gender, includes three chapters on the image of the Korean family, love and marriage, and work-family reconciliation as discussed from feminist perspectives. Part V, the Family in Life Stages, includes three chapters on the early, middle, and late years of the family, focusing on family relations. This book, edited from an interdisciplinary perspective, will be a useful guide and reference for those who expect a deeper understanding of the Korean family.
