Significant strides have been made in the area of military family research during the short five-year period from 1975 and 1980. This annotated bibliography on military family literature contains over 400 references and is an update of the 153-item Bibliography contained in the McCubbin, Dahl and Hunter book, Families in the Military System, published in 1976. A number of new topics are addressed in the present bibliography which had received little if any attention in prior years. The majority of these new areas evolved from the shift from the drafttime military to an All Voluntary Force in 1973. Also influential were the changed roles for both women and men in recent years, more dual career families and all-military families, greater number of active duty mothers and single parent families within the military system, and the failure of pay and allowances to meet the severe inflationary pressures of the late 1970s.
