This slim volume offers readers insight into some of the central debates and questions about gender and the family, examined through the lens of moral panic. Beginning with an overview of the role of moral panic in these debates and an appraisal of the work of Stanley Cohen, one of the chief architects of moral panic ideas, Gender and Family then draws on research and practice examples from around the world to explore interconnections between gender, class, race, and age. In this context, it investigates how the state and social work intervene in family life.
