The purpose of this book is to serve as a guide to understanding the Lati family in the United States and to describe the personal, political, historical, and sacred choices available in creating a freer and more fruitful family life. By linking theory to practice, the book provides a reenvisioning of the Lati family. Before any family can look at itself in a new way, it has to have a theoretical perspective. The book's theory of transformation provides a perspective that allows us to understand Lati families and the family in general. Furthermore, the politics of transformation shows us how to create fundamentally new and better relationships within the family.
