Beschreibung

Pugh challenges her readers to consider the implications of precarity beyond the workplace, that is, also in our home lives. Pugh successfully weaves together short quotes and stories, creating an intimate connection between the reader and her participants, and since she has 80 interviews, there is rich variation.One of the remarkable strengths of the book lies in Pugh's ability to consider a complex set of interlinking characteristics of her interviewees and generalize from them.

Autorentext
Allison J. Pugh is Professor of Sociology at the University of Virginia. Her book Longing and Belonging: Parents, Children, and Consumer Culture won the William J. Goode Book Award from the American Sociological Association Section on Sociology of the Family, and the Distinguished Contribution Award from the ASA Section on Children and Youth.

Klappentext

This book examines how we navigate questions of commitment and flexibility at work and at home in a world where insecurity has become the norm. How do people today, especially parents, think and talk about what we owe each other on the job and in intimate relationships-with partners, children, and others-when so much is perpetually up in the air?
