Abstract

While the family and its role continues to be a key topic in social and government policy, much of the literature is concerned with describing the dramatic changes that are taking place. By contrast, this book directly addresses the social processes responsible for these changes - how social policy interacts with what families actually do. With contributions from the UK, and North America, Analysing Families provides the framework within which to understand an increasingly important element in social policy.
