Summary

What happens when work and family space are shared? Beach examines the lives of home-working families and describes the interaction of work and family life. Detailed focus on the family system demonstrates how space and time are utilized, how spouses and children respond, and how the family may perceive home work as an adaptive effort to integrate work and family life. Beach highlights the often overlooked role of children in contributing to this home-work style.

"This book is methodologically significant. Beach is at her best analyzing the specifics of her data. She does so to make the routines of daily life significant and she contributes to a redefinition of what is appropriate for research." -- Eileen Boris, Howard University

Betty Beach is Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education at the University of Maine at Farmington.
