    1. I am familiar with Monica McGoldrick's other books and have found her feministic approach to couples and family therapy to be inspiring and challenging. This collection of chapters about various ethnic, cultural, spiritual, and gender-related issues in the couples and family field is exceptional. I found Tracey A.

    2.
