dc.descriptionThe Caribbean family has been perceived to be in crisis, partly because it does not conform to the Western ideal of a nuclear family. This article compares the changing family patterns in other parts of the world with family patterns that have remained fairly constant in the Caribbean, and suggests that many of the earlier assumptions about Caribbean families, particularly in relation to female-headed households, need to be re-examined. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
