Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen years after its first publication, The Second Shift remains just as important and relevant today as it did then. As the majority of women entered the workforce, sociologist and Berkeley professor Arlie Hochschild was one of the first to talk about what really happens in dual-career households. Many people were amazed to find that women still did the majority of childcare and housework even though they also worked outside the home. Now, in this updated edition with a new introduction from the author, we discover how much things have, or have not, changed for women today.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 303-314) and index.

Synopsis:

As the majority of women entered the workforce, sociologist and Berkeley professor Hochschild was one of the first to talk about what really happens in dual-career households. This landmark study of two-career parents ranks in significance with "The Feminine Mystique" and "The Second Sex."
