What really happens inside the home is something about which most people in fact know very little. The chapters in Home and Family open up the home and shed much new light on its place in people's lives. The contributors to the book emphasise that the creation of the home is an active process which is an integral part of people's family projects. In emphasising issues to do with gender, class and age, the book highlights the variety of meanings that the home has in modern society
