A Caring society? Care and the dilemmas of human service in the twenty-first century

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Care is no longer a private concern. In the era of high modernity, characterized by population aging, family fragmentation and the entry of women into the paid workforce, it has become a major public issue. This important text offers a systematic, comparative analysis of the sociology, philosophy and emergent practices of care in the context of the political economy of post-industrial societies.
