Books Info:

Rethinking Family Practices free pdf David Morgan's 'family practices' approach has been hugely influential to the study of families and personal life internationally. First developed in the 1990s, and set out in Family Connections (Polity Press, 1996), this new book revisits and elaborates the original argument, exploring the theoretical antecedents of this approach. Providing detailed treatment of some of the recent ways in which the approach has been used and extended, with careful consideration of alternative approaches to family living as well as of possible criticisms of this approach, the book demonstrates the continuing relevance of the practices approach for family studies examining key issues such as time and space, the body, emotions, ethics and work/life balance. Numerous published studies of family life provide illustrations for these explorations, Morgan concludes by showing why the practices approach continues to be important, arguing for the continuing need to explore family life as well as other forms of emotional or personal life. Written by one of the foremost authorities in the field, this book is a major new contribution to the field of the sociology of family and intimate life.
