There is an increasing divergence of focus group practice between social researchers and commercial market researchers. This book addresses the key issues and practical requirements of the social researcher, namely: the kinds of social research issues for which focus groups are most and least suitable; optimum group size and composition; and the designing of focusing exercises, facilitation and appropriate analysis. The authors use examples, drawn from their own focus groups research experience, and provide exercises for further study. They address the three main components of composition, conduct and analysis in focus group research and also acknowledge the increasing impact the Internet has had on social research by covering the role and conduct of `virtual focus groups'.

Some examine cross-cultural and historical variations of family patterns, in order to highlight the social organization of things that otherwise seem "natural." The bulk of articles focus onthe social relations of sexuality and intimacy, reproduction, parenting and living together. Because these relations are typically gender relations, a concern about gender inequality is constant throughout the book. Nearly three dozen scholars have contributed to this collection, and while most ofthe articles were previously published, several are new.
