Margaret Wetherell (born 24 November 1954), is a prominent academic in the area of discourse analysis. Her 1987 book, Discourse and Social Psychology: Beyond Attitudes and Behaviour, cowritten with Jonathan Potter, was very influential, particularly in social psychology, though also in other fields (. Wood & Kroger, 2000). While discourse analysis has many different meanings, Wetherell's approach has been quite catholic in line with other anglophone discourse analysts like Gilbert & Mulkay (1984).

Open University texts are oftenrecommended to undergraduates on parallel courses in other institutions, accepting that notall of the elements contained within it will be suitable in a somewhat different context, butacknowledging that such texts have the advantage of a strong creative team and are subject toan unusual degree of academic scrutiny in their development.

This introductory textbook presents an accessible, interdisciplinary account of how `the family′ is constituted in `public′ and `private′ spheres.

Drawing on a range of theoretical perspectives from sociology, social policy, psychology and psychoanalysis, the book examines critically assumptions about ′the family′ that are embedded in social policy, law and political discourse. It reveals that such assumptions fail to recognize a marked diversity of family forms in contemporary society and also ignore the complex ways in which family life comes to be experienced. It outlines the tensions that exist between the dominant assumptions of state and society and the lived realities and everyday experiences of family life.
