This book arrived as described and also arrived way earlier thank expected. I was very please this purchase.
This is a great compilation. The readings cover a wide variety of family, social, and intersectional issues with well-researched data and, for the most part, very readable voices. It's been my favorite "textbook" as an undergrad.
The binding was a little torn, but nothing a little tape couldn't fix. Many very very interesting reads!
