"Via these brief, compassionate and often amusing summaries, the themes presented here add up to an attempt to predict what the future of commercialisation and globalisation holds for the development of our emotional lives." Book of the Week--Stina Lyon & Karen Shook"Times Higher Education" (09/05/2013) "When Arlie Russell Hochschild asks, "So How's the Family?" she's not inquiring about your partner and kids. She has her sights on something bigger: the American family, even the global one. In this collection of essays, the noted Berkeley sociologist, author of "The Outsourced Self, " delves into ways in which the cultural line between market and home has become increasingly blurred as the social class gap has grown wider. The family, it turns out, is not doing so well worldwide, but Hochschild says there's hope."--Gayle Brandeis"San Francisco Chronicle" (09/06/2013)
