Addressing central issues concerning the study of family life in the period 1975-2016, which remain of pressing concern both to Britain and the world, this book is a fascinating personal and political document of the period. The unique study provides a sense of the changing relationships between social policy and social research and a biographical account of an important British sociologist. Brannen shows how research is an art as well as a science — a creative process that involves craft and practice.
