'Anyone seeking an understanding of what empirical sociology has achieved in Britain over the past twenty years could well start with this book. David Morgan skilfully weaves an original tapestry of British life based on such themes as food, home and the body, as well as the more traditional themes of class and work. He does this from a distinctive family perspective but this is more than simply another book about the family: it is an unusual way of approaching British Society as a whole.' Ray Pahl, University of Kent, Canterbury
'Morgan's comprehensive, judicious account of developments in the sociology of the family should be on every lecturer's and student's bookshelf.' Chris Harris, University College of Swansea
'David Morgan ... is one of leading scholars in the field of the sociology of the family. Family Connections is well structured and its themes are easy to follow. Morgan's knowledge of this field is impressive, and the book offers an excellent overview of how family matters are woven into a multitude of areas in social life. The book is highly informative and reflects the state of the art in today's family sociology.' Acta Sociologica
'Well-researched text ... Morgan writes well; the density of the material presented has been made very readable. For someone wanting a look at the latest in the social analysis of how families are defined at the political level, the social function of the family and the individuals within them it offers a variety of informed ideas with references to the relevant literature.'
