Summary "Most human sexuality texts focus on the individual, whereas texts designed for sociology courses on the family downplay individual sexual expression. Marital and Sexual Lifestyles in the United States integrates the two approaches. The choices of the individual take on additional meaning when seen within a unified historical, statistical, and conceptual framework."--Jacket
