Marriage, Domestic Life and Social Change is an important tribute to the life and work of Jacqueline Burgoyne, a leading sociologist of marriage and the family who died in 1988. The book includes an appreciation of her life by the editor, and one of her previously unpublished papers on couple relationships.

In specially commissioned chapters, a group of distinguished colleagues working in the field of family studies address a number of key issues that are central to the work of Jacqueline Burgoyne. The topics explored include the organization of family life in Britain since World War II; a review of key themes in family research in the 1980s; commentary on the major demographic trends relating to marriage and the family over the last four decades; family ideologies; interventions into family life; and investigations into the inner world of marriage, seen from psychodynamic and sociological perspectives. The book is both a fitting tribute to the important work of Jacqueline Burgoyne and a comprehensive guide to the sociology of the family.
