Review:

Family Matters In The British And American Novel examines the literature that challenges and alters widely held assumptions about the form of the family, familial authority patterns, and the function of courtship, marriage, and family life from the late 18th century to the present day. The thirteen essays in this collection view the family from a variety of perspectives: the family as a microcosm of the larger political sphere; alternatives to the nuclear patriarchal family; step-mothering; women's familial roles; fathering and step-fathering; racial discrimination and its effect on the black family; and reinventing the modern American family. Family Matters is an impressive body of literary and social scholarship. -- Midwest Book Review
