Editorial Reviews

Review

"An unflinching view of the American family, with all its stresses and joys on display. It's full of intriguing data."  -The New York Times


"A fascinating snapshot of America's material culture."  -Larry Mantle, AirTalk, Southern California Public Radio


"A meticulous, systematic documentation by a cross-disciplinary team...a visual ethnography of middle-class American households."  -The Washington Post

This book documents major findings of a brilliantly conceived and executed piece of social science research that speaks to a very wide and diverse audience. Its findings are significant, credible, and provocative. In my opinion, it is one of the most significant social-science projects undertaken in the United States, demonstrating the power of anthropological and archaeological approaches to researching human behavior, whether in a traditional tribal society or in an industrial megalopolis.

The discussions are filled with interesting insights that could only have come from a first-hand study of household material culture. The flow of everyday life in relation to places defined by objects provides a refreshing and unique perspective on human behavior. Readers will be drawn in by the lively, well-written, and accessible prose. The images are spectacular because there s nothing else like them in quality, quantity, and especially their unique view of modern family life and household possessions. [This book is] of great significance, not only to the social sciences but also to ongoing policy discussions about what is happening in America. --Michael Brian Schiffer (University of Arizona)
