Review:

"Families and Family Therapy is far and away the most important single unified book to have emerged to date from the field of family therapy. Published by Harvard University Press, it is a landmark textbook that will greatly facilitate the task of the teacher of family therapy and theory. The student who is learning to work with families will find it easy to understand, fascinating, and richly rewarding at many levels... [Minuchin] has combined the most sophisticated of conceptual approaches with simple, direct exposition, achieving a creative synthesis that, in this reviewer's opinion, will stand as the definitive textbook in this field for perhaps another generation...Among family therapists, Minuchin is recognized as a most original innovator, a superb clinician, and an outstanding teacher. He has been able to transmit all of his background and experience into this excellent book. Anyone who has a serious interest in family therapy today will want to have and to know this book.

ÝThe book¨, developed out of Salvador Minuchin's acute clinical observations, presents a map of structural theory and a set of guidelines which have led to astonishingly effective changes in dysfunctional families. What may seem simple in Minuchin's approach is often uncommon common sense or the deep clinical wisdom that emerges out of intensive, repetitive study of family interactions and communications. -- Arthur Mandelbaum, M.S.W. "Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic"

There is no doubt that Minuchin has written a splendid book on family therapy. His thoughts are presented clearly and systematically, without short-changing conceptual and clinical sophistication. The book is a rounded, self-contained statement of structural family therapy that has much to teach the advanced therapist, of whatever theoretical persuasion, and perhaps equally as much to teach the beginner.--Kitty La Perriere, Ph.D. "Family Process "

This book will be interesting to a variety of readers, and particularly useful for mental health professionals working with groups, family counselors interested in the dynamic of family process, and scholars of social psychiatric phenomena.--Sylvia Clavan "Journal of Marriage and the Family "

"Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic "

This book is simply magnificent. Both novice and experienced family therapists can learn much from it. Just as Dr. Minuchin becomes quickly engaged with families, so the reader will become quickly engaged with his book. This will be a major and lasting contribution to the field of family study and therapy. I for one will make it standard reading with my students, psychiatric residents, and other trainees, as well as faculty.--Lyman C. Wynne, M.D., Ph.D.
