Summary
    African American Male/Female Relationships: A Reader examines the social, economic, political, and cultural forces that present challenges to the formation and development of healthy relationships and, ultimately, marriages and families. The anthology pushes students to think critically about how ideologies and values stemming from these forces shape their own ideas, values, and perceptions and to examine their own approach to relationships.

    African American Male/Female Relationships: A Reader is divided into eleven topical units:

    • Love
    • Gender
    • Dating
    • Negative Images and Stereotypes
    • Health and Nutrition
    • Intimate Partner Violence
    • Parenting
    • Sexuality/Sexual Health
    • Incarceration
    • Alternative Lifestyles
    • Marriage

    The journal articles and book chapters included in the reader are critical for the serious study of African American male-female relationships.

    African American Male/Female Relationships: A Reader is designed to be used with African American Relationships, Marriages, and Families: An Introduction. It is also an excellent supplemental reader for Sociology or African American Studies courses that focus on marriage and family.
