The Anti-social Family, Paperback / softback Book

The Anti-social Family Paperback / softback


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 constitute the family form in advanced capitalist societies.

This classic work explores the personal and social needs that the family promises to meet but more often denies, and proposes moral and political practices that go beyond the family to more egalitarian caring alternatives.
