Built on bracing original research that spans gay mens intimacies and parenting in this country to plural and non-marital forms of family in South Africa and China, Unhitched uncouples the relationships we take for granted between love, marriage, and parenthood. Countering the one-size-fits-all vision of family values, Judith Stacey offers readers a lively, in-person introduction to these less familiar varieties of intimacy and family and to the social, political, and economic conditions that buttress and batter them. Through compelling stories of real families navigating inescapable personal and political trade-offs between desire and domesticity, the book undermines popular convictions about family, gender, and sexuality held on the left, right, and centre. Taking on prejudices of both conservatives and feminists, Unhitched poses a powerful empirical challenge to the belief that the nuclear family - whether straight or gay - is the single, best way to meet our needs for intimacy and care. Stacey calls on citizens and policy-makers to make their peace with the fact that family diversity is here to stay.
