This book examines the artistic profession, which can be a challenge to characterize. Various fields of artistic work are coupled with a range of different artistic attitudes, and these, in turn, with a variety of social positions assumed by artists, various historical conditions in which the profession functions, as well as the diverse courses of artistic careers. There are those who say that this profession is not an occupation, but a vocation of an almost mystical nature. Yet, it is still tempting to examine the phenomenon of the artist, at least to the extent that it is possible in light of the scarcity of historical data.

Family Careers makes use of the developmental approach to studying families in order to present a clear, up-to-date account of the changes in families from the time they are formed until they are dissolved. Particular emphasis is given to: the influence of social contexts on patterns of family interaction over time; and the family as a social context within which individual members develop. A coherent and manageable presentation of systems theory informs the argument, and the inherent limitations of the developmental perspective are recognized.
