From the Publisher

‘The Sociology of the Family: A Reader, edited by Graham Allan, range wisely across topics, from gender differences in emotional work in relationships to how couples manage their money and what it means … [The chapters] sparkle with energy and enthusiasm for the subject. This volume showcases the intellectual activity in family scholarship today.’ — Linda Waite, Professor of Sociology and Co-Director, Alfred P. Sloan Center on Parents, Children and Work at the University of Chicago

‘The pieces chosen are not only of interest in their own right, but also, together with Allan’s introductions, serve as excellent guides to further reading. I cannot wait to be able to recommend this much-needed collection to students and researchers in this field.’ — Dr David Morgan, Department of Sociology, The University of Manchester
