Format: Paperback
A slim volume that nevertheless manages to cover a wide-range of syllabus issues and themes. Chapters on areas such as family life and social change, defining families, the "universal family" and the "death of the family" debates sit alongside discussion of questions such as why people marry and have children, domestic labour and sexual abuse. The book makes no pretence of "balance" (it’s subtitled "Changing Households and Familiar Ideologies") and no concessions to modern styles of presentation. However, since it’s written in a neat, conversational, style that reads more like a novel than a sociology text, pictures and diagrams aren’t needed. For a general, highly readable, overview of family life, this is hard to beat...
