"The outsourcing of domestic work in the UK has been steadily rising since the 1970s, but there has been little research into White British women who work as independent providers of cleaning services. 'Work, Labour and Cleaning' is a cross-cultural analysis based on new research into two particular social contexts, one in the UK and one in India. It argues that outsourced domestic cleaning can be undertaken either as work (using mental and manual skills) or as labour (unskilled, 'natural' women's work) depending on the social context and working conditions in which it occurs. The book challenges feminist dogma and popular myths about housework"-- Provided by publisher
