Summary
"Written by nationally recognized anthropologists Conrad P. Kottak and Lara Descartes, this ethnography of largely white, middle class families in a town in the Midwest explores the role that the media play in influencing how those families cope with everyday work/family issues. The book insightfully reports that families struggle with, and make, work/family decisions based largely on the images and ideas they receive from media sources, though they strongly deny being so influenced."--BOOK JACKET
