The Family in Question : Changing Households and Familiar Ideologies
(2nd ed. 1993)
Part of the Women in society series
After a decade of Thatcherism, rising illegitimacy and the moral panic over child sexual abuse, the family is more of a political issue than ever.
But is it 'the family' that is in crisis, or family ideology?
In this revised edition of an important and controversial book, Diana Gittins adds to a broad range of historical, anthropological and feminist evidence, a new chapter on child sexual abuse.
