MEDIA REVIEWS

'Essential reading . . . Morgan casts off tantalizing threads for researchers to pick up and take forward' - Jacqui Gabb, Network Magazine

'This is an engaging and stimulating read and I have no doubt this book will be read widely by scholars in the sociology of families and beyond.' - The Sociological Review

'This new text is essential reading . . . As a companion text to its predecessor, it will be core reading on all undergraduate and postgraduate courses on families and personal relationships and the study of intimacy.' - Journal of Gender Studies'

"From a noun to a verb", David Morgan navigates family practices through changing social theories and historical times: reflecting on his own contribution, critiques and contemporary turns to time, emotion and ethics. This is a wise book, drawing on a lifetime of scholarship yet is fresh and future-oriented. Lucid, accessible and deeply rooted in the discipline of sociology, I would commend this book to a wide readership of researchers, students and teachers in the social sciences and family studies.' - Rachel Thomson, Professor of Social Research, The Open University, UK
