Essays & IdeasHumour
Kindle Single: Essays & Ideas If we judged the Developed World by the state of its families, the verdict would be guilty as charged. And the victims, increasingly, are our children. The authors of this invigorating Kindle Single are not seeking a return to a mythical world of two parents, two children (and sometimes a dog), but instead propose steps by which the ‘New Family’ can make sure it doesn’t leave the kids behind.

A fascinating account of a 'hidden revolution.'
