More and more people are choosing to earn a living at home. In Work, At Home explores the meaning and experience of this type of employment by covering a wide range of issues including:

* social relationships

* current research methodologies

* statistical analyses of global labour markets

* the emotional and psychological processes of self-management

* home relations.

Presenting statistical analyses of labour markets in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, In Work, At Home provides a valuable introduction to the issues and debates surrounding homeworking and will appeal to students across a range of disciplines, including sociology, business studies and women's studies.


'Interesting, comprehensive and bound to be the new classic on the topic.' - Carol Wolkowitz, University of Warwick
