Families and the State by Sarah Cunningham-Burley

Book Description

How possible is it for the state to steer family values and relationships? How do we assess claims of harm and benefit from state action and inaction? What kind of engagement should we seek between the state and our personal lives? The evidence presented includes state engagements with separating couples, lone parents, retired people, black families, disabled people, pregnant teenagers and young people negotiating adulthood. The range of perspectives, data, and cross-nation-state comparisons, helps readers to come to their own conclusions.

Reframing the Body by Sarah Cunningham-Burley Reframing the Body, Hardback (August 2001)

There has been a notable upsurge of interest in the body, both in terms of empirical and theoretical study and debate. Contributions to this book move these debates forward by considering a range of bodies as active in their own construction in social and economic processes.
