Omtale So How's the Family?
In this new collection of thirteen essays, Arlie Russell Hochschild--author of the groundbreaking exploration of emotional labor, The Managed Heart and The Outsourced Self--focuses squarely on the impact of social forces on the emotional side of intimate life. From the "work" it takes to keep personal life personal, put feeling into work, and empathize with others; to the cultural "blur" between market and home; the effect of a social class gap on family wellbeing; and the movement of care workers around the globe, Hochschild raises deep questions about the modern age. In an eponymous essay, she even points towards a possible future in which a person asking "How's the family?" hears the proud answer, "Couldn't be better."
