The contributions to this book demonstrate that the household remains a fertile source of enquiry about the origins, processes and outcomes of gendered activity. The first section of the book provides a theoretical framework with chapters from the editors and David Morgan. Together these explore the concepts of gender and household both historically and philosophically. The subsequent sections offer a series of chapters which are based upon empirical studies, each addressing different aspects of family life and practice. In the second section, Gendered Care, activities strongly associated with home and family are considered. This is followed by the section Gendered Time and Space, which concentrates upon demands and negotiations around two crucial aspects of managing home life. The final section, Gendered Work, Income and Power, illustrates how blurred are the boundaries between home and work. This book provides a contemporary consideration of key concepts and research on the dynamics of gender, the household and related activities.
