Abstract

Linda C. McClain Why do families matter? Why is the premise that strong policies, reasonable feminist critiques simply cannot hope to families are a foundation of a strong polity a staple in politiprevail against arguments rooted in ideology. Shanley suggests cal rhetoric, even as the politics of the family remain divisive? that what is needed is nothing short of a radical (and unlikely) I address these questions from the vantage point of political transformation from the ideology of consumerism and capitaltheory and law in The Place of Families: Fostering Capacity, ism to a more socialist perspective that better recognizes human Equality, and Responsibility. My book offers a framework for interdependency. Finally, Lopez contends that my formative, or thinking about the relationship between family life and political transformative project, of promoting sex equality flies in the face life and often contested issues of family law and policy. I appreof constraints dictated by our human nature, and particularly, our ciate the forum this journal is providing for an exchange about sexual natures as women and men. my book with political theorists and political scientists and thank the contributors for their commentaries.
