This book looks at the internal and external dynamics of stepfamilies, taking the reader through a series of case studies and examining characteristic pitfalls and opportunities. The author compares the basic building block of the stepfamily, the conflicts that arise, and the socio-historical origins of today's stepfamilies. He demonstrates that stepfamilies produce children who are just as well adjusted as children brought up by conventional families.
