Product Details

Product Description


Despite a large body of scholarship on work-family relationships, none accomplishes what this volume does. It disrupts the work-family binary, demonstrating how this divide contributes to neo-liberal agendas. The chapters consist of fine-grained and nuanced empirical studies as well as broader think pieces that offer alternative conceptions for scholarship and for policy. - Belinda Leach, co-author of Contingent Work, Disrupted Lives: Labour and Community in the New Rural Economy

Book Description

A Life in Balance? challenges the idea that work and family are separate and competing spheres rather than aspects of a single existence.
