Drawing from forty years of experience, Julia Brannen offers an invaluable account of how research in family studies is conducted and 'matters' at particular times. It covers key developments in the field and vital issues which remain of pressing concern to Britain and the world. Brannen shows how social research is an art as well as a science - a process that involves craft and creativity.

Recensioner i media

''Well-known for the path-breaking methods and analytical sophistication of her work, Julia Brannen offers insightful reflections on a remarkable career in sociological research on families that are instructive and engaging.'' Graham Crow, University of Edinburgh "Brannen combines personal experience with a finely-tuned sensitivity to institutional dynamics to explain how social research is stimulated - and, just as often, constrained - by the broader political economy. A masterful reflection on the politics of knowledge creation." Rosanna Hertz, Wellesley College ''This clearly written book charts, through the biographical account of a respected scholar of family life, the changing social, historical and political context of social science research in postwar UK.'' Julie Seymour, Hull York Medical School
