The Future of the Family

This is one of my favourite but least known books. After spending nearly ten years researching an overly ambitious History of Twentieth Century Domesticity, I produced my conclusions in this nutshell volume for an Orion pre-millennium series,. I still think it has all the most important things I have discovered about why the family changed so much in the last 50 years, and where it will be going next.
