Family Geographies is a contributed text that examines the role of geography in shaping the experience and practice of family life. Each of the chapters uses geographical concepts of space, distance, place, and community to illustrate how families impact and interact with their environment. From the zoo, to family vehicles, to retirement communities, the authors draw on a wide range of primary research to explore the everyday spaces that shape, and are shaped by, family life. Integrating case studies, interviews, surveys, and personal accounts with theoretical analysis and existing literature, this text offers a unique contribution to an emerging field of study.
