Fine, Ben 1992, WOMEN'S EMPLOYMENT AND THE CAPITALIST FAMILY, Routledge,London and New York
This book has been written as a consequence of a research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, to study consumption norms and female labour-market participation. It is complemented by a volume, jointly authored with Ellen Leopold and shortly to appear, covering both a critique of the treatment of consumption across the social sciences and a more positive analysis of consumption based on the idea of ‘systems of provision’. The research has also led to empirical estimation of consumption norms for different household types by use of data from the National Readership Survey and the General Household Survey. The writing up of these results is also soon to be completed. Many, some unknown, have helped me during the preparation of this book. I wish to thank them all, but particularly Jan O’Brien whose comments and encouragement have led to vast improvements in presentation and content.
