Many scholars and political analysts assume that thriving kin and non-kin social support networks continue to characterize minority family life. Policy recommendations based on these underlying assumptions may lead to the implementation of harmful social policy. No More Kin examines extended kinship networks among African American, Chicano and Puerto-Rican families in the United States, and provides an integrated theoretical framework for examining how the simultaneity of gender, race and class oppression affects minority family organization.
