Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1166–1168. Reviews the book, Of Human Bonding: Parent-Child Relations Across the Life Course by Alice S. Rossi and Peter H. Rossi (1990). This book is an ambitious, indeed monumental, attempt to fill this gap. Its authors have been married to each other for more than 40 years and are both former presidents of the American Sociological Association. Alice S. Rossi has specialized mainly in family, kinship, sex, and gender, Peter H. Rossi has been a research methodologist focusing on a variety of topics that have previously overlapped very little with those of his wife. This book, in part the product of Alice S. Rossi's recent upgrading of her statistical and research design skills, is their first collaboration. Funded largely by the National Institute on Aging, the study presents a wealth of information on family relations across three generations.
