"For us, as for most Americans, " write the former vice-president, Nobel Prize Winner and his wife, "family is our bedrock, and we believe the strength of the American family is the nation's bedrock. " But the American family has changed substantially in the last half century and so have the cultural and economic conditions under which it exists. The families the Gores have encountered in a decade of research reflect these changes: one couple has children from the husband's three different relationships, a gay white couple adopts two black children, a single mother struggles with poverty.
