Women, Family, and Class free pdf For more than 40 years, Lillian Rubin's work has stood as a model for the integration of the psychological and the sociological in studies of class, male-female relationships and friendships, women and aging, the sexual revolution, and the contemporary crisis of the American family. Worlds of Pain: Life in the Working-Class Family and her other books have been enormously influential. This new book brings together articles and book excerpts that reflect Rubin's revolutionary style and her distinct analytic contributions.
