Forlagets beskrivelse
A personal, intimate account of the extraordinary ways that today?s families are being created.?

From adoption and assisted reproduction, to gay and straight parents, coupled and single, and multi-parent families, the stories in Modern Families explain how individuals make unconventional families by accessing a broad range of technological, medical and legal choices that expand our definitions of parenting and kinship. Joshua Gamson introduces us to a child with two mothers, made with one mother?s egg and the sperm of a man none of them has ever met; another born in Ethiopia, delivered by his natural grandmother to an orphanage after both his parents died in close succession, and then to the arms of his mother, who is raising him solo. ?

These tales are deeply personal and political. The process of forming these families involved jumping tremendous hurdles?social conventions, legal and medical institutions?with heightened intention and inventiveness, within and across multiple inequities and privileges. Yet each of these families, however they came to be, shares the same universal joys that all families share.?

A companion for all those who choose to navigate the world of modern kinship, Modern Families provides a ?fascinating look at the remarkable range of experiences that is broadening the very idea of family? (Booklist).?
