Overview

The contributors to this volume work from the premise that the changing realities of work and family cannot be understood without attention to household labour — so long dismissed or ignored — and the social relations surrounding it.

'Berk's choice of authors, most but not all of whom are known in their respective fields, was good and representative. Deserving of praise also is the sequence of the articles, beginning with an historical one (Strasser's) and ending with Joann Vanek's excellent article summarizing the state of the art, or the extent of our knowledge and our ignorance of housework.' — Sociology, Jul/Aug 1981
