Overview

"Garey and Hansen have assembled a stunning collection of studies on the emotional and logistical dynamics of coordinating paid and unpaid work. A must read."-Stephanie Coontz, author of A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s

At the Heart of Work and Family presents original research on those topics by scholars who engage and build on the conceptual framework developed by the well-known sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild. These concepts, such as "the second shift," "the economy of gratitude," "emotion work," "feeling rules," "gender strategies," and "the time bind," are basic to sociology and have shaped both popular discussions and academic study. The common thread in these essays covering the gender division of housework, childcare networks, families in the global economy, and children of consumers is the incorporation of emotion, feelings, and meaning into the study of working families. These examinations, like Hochschild's own work, connect microlevel interaction to larger social and economic forces and illustrate the continued relevance of linking economic relations to emotional ones for understanding contemporary work-family life.

Anita Ilta Garey is an associate professor of human development and family studies and of sociology at the University of Connecticut. Her book Weaving Work and Motherhood received the 2000 William J. Goode Book Award.

Karen V. Hansen is a professor of sociology and women's and gender studies at Brandeis University. Her books include Not-So-Nuclear Families: Class, Gender, and Networks of Care (Rutgers University Press), which received the William J. Goode Book Award, Honorable Mention.

A volume in the Families in Focus series, edited by Anita Ilta Garey, Naomi R. Gerstel, Karen V. Hansen, Rosanna Hertz, and Margaret K. Nelson

Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Sociology

"This collection of articles by many of [Hochschild's] former students and collaborators is a fitting and loving tribute to the life work of one of the most original, influential, and passionate contributors to the discipline of sociology, and much more broadly to the study of emotions, work, family, and human relationships in the global economy."
author of A Strange Stirring - Stephanie Coontz

"Garey and Hansen have assembled a stunning collection of studies on the emotional and logistical dynamics of coordinating paid and unpaid work. A must read."
author of Changing Contours of Work - Stephen Sweet

"At the Heart of Work and Family deftly illustrates Hochschild's path-breaking perspectives, advancing understandings of job/career designs, gendered expectations, and family lives as they intertwine in the new economy."
Work

"In selecting essays for the book, Garey and Hansen illustrate the diversity of research weaving together the contours of gender, work and intimate life, which highlight the complexity of experiences in the 21st century. In doing so, this book becomes a road map for examining the rich terrain of the most vexed policy and social issues of contemporary life."
Teachers College Record

"At the Heart of Work and Family brings together scholarship from a wide variety of respected scholars to apply Hochschild’s concepts to explore work and family dynamics. It is engaging, dynamic, conceptually rich, and moves the field of work and family scholarship forward."
Social Service Review

"Garey and Hansen's selection of essays touch upon a rich range of work-family topics. At the Heart of Work and Family is an important contribution to the interdisciplinary field of work and family, and it makes an invaluable contribution to the field of sociology."
Contemporary Sociology

"This collection of articles by many of [Hochschild's] former students and collaborators is a fitting and loving tribute to the life work of one of the most original, influential, and passionate contributors to the discipline of sociology, and much more broadly to the study of emotions, work, family, and human relationships in the global economy."
