Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The text applies the modern management theory and evaluation to the decision making and problem solving within the family unit. The text applies principles of planning, implementing and evaluating needs in household settings. The position that sees management as a process approach sets the text apart from earlier texts on family management.
