Care is no longer a private concern. In the twenty-first century, 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.
MICHAEL FINE is Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Deputy Director, Centre for Research on Social Inclusion at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.
