Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book examines how hegemonic values prevail in discourse about family values and the Eurocentric middle class ideal influences our perception and leads to policy decisions, which perpetuate stereotypes and power imbalances. A helpful resource for courses in human communication studies (particularly family communication) and gender studies.
