Abstract:

Each chapter in this compendium focuses on a particular topic area and reviews what we have learned, identifies gaps in our present knowledge, and suggests directions for future research on military members and their families. In several cases, theoretical issues pertaining to a given substantive area are explored as well. This review of military family research reveals the value of theory and the need for more effort in that direction. Other general recommendations that emerge include the need for additional qualitative research, more secondary analysis of existing data and increased longitudinal studies.
