I'll start by stating that B&N always comes through!! Everything I wish for is available online and I couldn't ask for a more efficient ordering and delivery service. Next of Kin is valuable for its content regarding ethnic and family life -- an academic textbook for college/university studies, which brings to light important issues regarding family and social issues. The author's insight gives students and families/society a source of information which is timely - not only for university studies, but for family awareness. We all benefit from writings of this nature. When I became aware that my son is mentioned (w/photo) in this book, I immediately placed an order for two - one for myself; the other for extended family. The books were received 3 days after I placed the order. This book is on my "wish list" for gifts to additional family members and friends. I highly recommend this beautifully written and informational book.
