Editorial Reviews


"Overall, this book is a wonderful resource for scholars interested in gender, paid and domestic labor, and cross-national comparison. The book is especially strong on the comparison of countries with Western Europe, the United States, and Canada . . . Treas and Drobnic have carefully chosen to include a series of topics written by thoughtful researchers that help add significantly to our understanding of domestic labor and gender inequality around the world."—Amanda J. Miller, Journal of Comparative Family Studies

"For over 30 years, who does what in the heterosexual, married household has been a serious topic of sociological study . . . This volume is a good beginning for the graduate student or researcher who wishes to go beyond the confines of U.S.-based analyses."—Sarah Fenstermaker, Contemporary Sociology

"Studies on work, education, and politics often fall short when it comes to theorizing about unpaid caring and domestic work, despite the fact that this type of work provides critical context for production and is the key to reproduction! This vital book compares variations in housework hours and shares of housework hours in the context of policy differences across a wide range of countries. How could it fail to be exciting and important?"—Frances Goldscheider, University of Maryland

"There are surprising results embedded in this thought-provoking book examining variations in institutional and cultural contexts on gender relations in the home. It's immensely enjoyable from cover to cover and could very well become the standard source on cross-national domestic labor patterns."—Janeen Baxter, The University of Queensland
