9780199261895: Changing Times: Work and Leisure in Postindustrial Society

Time allocation, whether considered at the level of the individual or of the society, is a major focus of public concern. Are our lives more congested with work than they used to be? Is society polarizing into groups which, on one side, have too much work and too little leisure time to spend their money in, and on the other have no paid work, and hence no money to pay for the goods and services they might wish to use during their leisure? Has the recent convergence in men's and women's labour market roles led to an unfair distribution of the totals of paid plus unpaid work? These issues, and others similar, once the preserve of a few specialist sociologists and economists, now appear daily and prominently across the news and entertainment media.

Yet there is surprisingly little substantive evidence of how individuals and societies spend their time, and of how this has changed in the developed world over the recent past. This book brings together, for the first time, data gathered in some forty national scale 'time-diary' studies, from twenty countries, and covering the last third of the twentieth century. It examines the newly emerging political economy of time, in the light of new estimates of how time is actually spent, and of how this has changed, in the developed world.

Recensione:

Review from previous edition The book ... is entirely accessible to the general reader and many of the key ideas are graphically illustrated. ( A.J.Veal, Annals of Leisure Research, Vol.3, 2000)

Presents a theory of change instructive for debates surrounding subjects as diverse as work and family, consumption and production, globalization, leisure, social status, systems of provision, innovation studies and economic development . . . it is the most comprehensive and accessibly written account of how people use time across European and North American countries. ( British Journal of Sociology)

A very interesting and enlightening look at our time and times. ( American Journal of Sociology)

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 320 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.7in.If we can measure how the members of a society spend their time, we have the elements of a certain sort of account of how that society works. This is what Jonathan Gershuny provides in Changing Times, using 120, 000 survey-diary accounts of daily life in twenty countries from the 1960s on to construct an account of how time-use patterns have changed in the developed world over the last third of a century and to relate these changes to economic development. His analysis of the data and of existing theoretical approaches highlights, and goes some way to addressing, problems in the standard National Accounting classifications of work and will become the foundation of a new approach to the economics and sociology of time.
