September 2012 | 312 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Feminist research is having an increasing impact on the study of families and close relationships. In this book, each contributor traces her or his experience of incorporating gender into a research programme informed by feminist ideas, methods and ethics. This personal statement is then used to reflexively examine the author's own work, as well as the work of others, on many of the central topics in the study of families and close relationships - love, caregiving, sexuality, friendship, ageing, work and violence.
Linda Thompson
