Bowlby, Sophia, MacPherson, Isobel, Gregory, Susan


Care is increasingly high profile both politically and socially, particularly in relation to the tensions between providing care and economic participation. Interdependency and Care over the Lifecourse draws upon theories of time and space to consider how informal care is woven into the fabric of everyday lives and is shaped by social and economic inequalities and opportunities.The book comprises three parts. The first explores contrasting social and economic contexts of care in different parts of the world. The second looks at different themes and dynamics of caring within informal care, using fictional vignettes of illness and health, child care, elderly care and communities of care. The book examines the significance to practices of care throughout the lifecourse of:understandings and expectations of careemotional exchanges involved in carememories and anticipations of giving and receiving carethe social nature of the spaces and places in which care is carried outthe practical time-space scheduling necessary to caring activities.Finally the authors critically examine how the frameworks of caringscapes and carescapes might be used in research, policy and practice and provide a working example.This book is an invaluable contribution of the care work debate and will be of interest to students and researchers of care work, geography, sociology of the family and social policy as well as those in business and policy communities trying to gain an understanding of how work and informal care interweave.Bowlby, Sophia is the author of 'Interdependency and Care over the Lifecourse (Relationships and Resources)', published 2010 under ISBN 9780415434676 and ISBN 041543467X.
