A compilation of excellent scholarly work, itself a testament to the importance of good writing, good research, and good social science. Ferguson provides an overview of issues, topics, and perspectives on family and kinship. The anthology works as a good introduction to the family and kinship studies as well as sociology as a whole. The tone is often academic and is often a bit dense for the general public, but it is not needlessly technical and does not require familiarity with the topic or the ideas. In fact, one of the things I like best about this is that it consistently challenges myths and misunderstandings about family and kinship by examining widespread beliefs and attitudes and the reality behind them.This book should be a standard for all sociology students, and I would recommend it for all social science students and anyone interested in family or social matters.
