Too Much Junk?


Connecticut College anthropology professor Anthony Graesch has co-authored a new, non-traditional book that throws open the doors of 32 dual-income middle-class families to give readers an in-depth look at life at home in 21st century America.

Richly illustrated with more than 250 color photos and maps, insightful observations, statistical information and quotes from the everyday people featured in the book, "Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century" is a handsome large-format book that makes a 10-year, intensive ethnographic research project accessible to the average reader.

Teaming up with lead author Jeanne E. Arnold, professor of anthropology at the University of
California, Los Angeles, and two other researchers, photographer Enzo Ragazzini and UCLA
Professor of Anthropology and MacArthur Fellow Elinor Ochs, Graesch and the new book have grabbed the attention of the media, including these outlets:
