In-Depth UCLA Study of 32 Families Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century : 32 Families Open Their Doors is the title of a new book, which exactly describes the contents. It's an inter-disciplinary study by archaeologists, anthropologists and other social scientists, documenting the daily lives of 32 families.

We hear more from one of the authors and one of the subjects.

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
