Description

Product Description The work patterns of European women from 1700 onwards fluctuate in relation to ideological, demographic, economic and familial changes. In A History of European Women's Work, Deborah Simonton draws together recent research and methodological developments to take an overview of trends in women's work across Europe from the so-called pre-industrial period to the present. Taking the role of gender and class in defining women's labour as a central theme, Deborah Simonton compares and contrasts the pace of change between European countries, distinguishing between Europe-wide issues and local developments. Review 'Her overview is a considerable achievement, which is unlikely to be surpassed for some time...this useful book will take a primary place on my student readin list.' - Labour History Review 'This impressive book ... it should be interesting to the general reader, while being useful to students and those who need to have a good overview of the subject.' - Fawcett Library Newsletter
