The book focuses on the relationship between work and family in the context of debate about labour law and regulation. It considers not just the position of women workers (paid and unpaid) or the current preoccupation of states with developing more family-friendly workplaces but it looks at these issues within the broader context of changes taking place in the world of work as a consequence of globalization.
