Her most recent book, with Rosalind Edwards and Val Gillies, is Making Families: Moral Tales of Parenting and Step-Parenting, Sociologypress, 2003. She is currently engaged on a literature review on ′Young People, Bereavement and Loss′. Further details of her work can be found at http://www.open.ac.uk/socialsciences/staff/jribbens-mccarthy/

Review:

This is a thoughtful and sometimes challenging elaboration of some of the key concepts in contemporary family studies. In each of the forty-eight short essays, the reader will find a theoretically informed and cross-referenced guide to the major themes that have constituted this highly significant area of the social sciences. Students and researchers will want to have this book close to hand, not simply as a reference work but as a stimulus to critical social analysis
David H J Morgan
Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester

Key Concepts in Family Studies is written in an intelligent, engaging, and accessible manner by two leading and highly respected family scholars whose contributions to the field over the past two decades have been path-breaking. This is an important resource for students and professionals studying, and working in, the field of family studies within and across the disciplines of sociology, social policy, social work, health studies, education, and gender studies
Andrea Doucet
Professor of Sociology
