"Taken together, the essays emphasize the need to rethink current conceptions of child care & to broaden the framework to include political & community organizing. 8 Tables, 590 References." -- Sociological Abstracts, J. Lindroth "America runs itself on female talent, permits a growing class divide, and begrudges public programs that might extend care. We badly need something more-a social revolution in our thinking about and provision of care. This much needed book helps lead the way." -- Arlie Russell Hochschild, author of The Time Bind: When WorkBecomes Home and Home Becomes Work "The concept of 'carework' has energized recent research. Child Care and Inequality provides a vivid sampling of fresh and broadened insight into some of the most important problems of our time." -- Barrie Thorne, author of Gender Play: Girls and Boys in School "This excellent collection contains invaluable, concrete studies that show how child care in contemporary societies reproduces and deepens social inequality. It should be must reading for policy makers and concerned citizens who worry about inequality and the quality of care." -- Joan C. Tronto, author of Moral Boundaries: APolitical Argument for an Ethic of Care (Routledge) "This sharply-focused analysis of the array of child care options available to ordinary U.S. families demonstrates that far too often we come up short. These scholars lay the ground work for a greater range of options and long over-due supports." -- Madonna Harrington Meyer, editor of Care Work: Gender, Labor, and the Welfare State (Routledge) "This is a marvelous collection of essays.. This volume will make an invaluable contribution to a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses which address issues of children and youth, women's lives, and social inequality." -- Margaret K. Nelson, author of NegotiatedCare: The Experiences of Family Day Care Providers
