Abstract

About the book: Work: Personal Lives and Social Policy explores some of the diverse ways in which work helps to structure the relations between social policy and personal lives. Drawing on a range of theoretical approaches, the authors explore questions that are central to our understanding of how the personal not only is shaped in and through work, but also contributes to social relations at work.
