The Way We Never Were: American Families and the Nostalgia Trap - Coontz, Stephanie (Introduction by)

From "a man's home was his castle" to "traditional families never asked for a handout", this provocative book explodes cherished illusions about the last two centuries of American family life to expose the falseness, sentimentality, and self-righteousness of our accepted familial morays.
