The gap between the lived reality and the public image of the family is greater than ever.
Family Politics goes behind the political rhetoric about families and explores the more complicated reality.
Family remains central to our identity, health and happiness, but there are many different sorts of families and many other relationships that are like family.
Moving memoirs, revealing stories and insightful analysis delve into the small p politics of individual families and examine the political challenges that arise when family is centre stage.
The compelling writing in Family Politics resonates and challenges the idea that all happy families resemble one another.
