The Anti-Social Family, Paperback / softback Book

The Anti-Social Family Paperback / softback

Part of the Radical Thinkers series


Although family values are frequently lamented for being in decline, our society continues to be structured around the nuclear family.

The Anti-Social Family dissects the network of household, kinship and sexual relations that is the dominant family form in advanced capitalist societies.

This now classic book explores the personal and social needs that the family ideally meets but more often denies.

Finally the authors propose a moral and political practice directed beyond the family towards more egalitarian caring alternatives.
