The managed heart : commercialization of human feeling by Arlie Russell Hochschild( Book )
67 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Arlie Hochschild examines two groups of public-contact workers: flight attendants and bill collectors. The flight attendant's job is to deliver a service and create further demand for it, to enhance the status of the customer and be "nicer than natural." The bill collector's job is to collect on the service, and if necessary, to deflate the status of the customer by being "nastier than natural." Between these extremes, roughly one-third of American men and one-half of American women hold jobs that call for substantial emotional labor. In many of these jobs, they are trained to accept feeling rules and techniques of emotion management that serve the company's commercial purpose. Like a physical laborer who becomes estranged from what he or she makes, an emotional laborer, such as a flight attendant, can become estranged not only from her own expressions of feeling (her smile is not "her" smile), but also from what she actually feels (her managed friendliness). This estrangement, though a valuable defense against stress, is also an important occupational hazard, because it is through our feelings that we are connected with those around us

Global woman : nannies, maids, and sex workers in the new economy ( Book )
30 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a remarkable pairing, two renowned social critics offer a groundbreaking anthology that examines the unexplored consequences of globalization on the lives of women worldwide. Women are moving around the globe as never before. But for every female executive racking up frequent flier miles, there are multitudes of women whose journeys go unnoticed. Each year, millions leave Mexico, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, and other third world countries to work in the homes, nurseries, and brothels of the first world. This broad-scale transfer of labor associated with women's traditional roles results in an odd displacement. In the new global calculus, the female energy that flows to wealthy countries is subtracted from poor ones, often to the detriment of the families left behind. The migrant nanny--or cleaning woman, nursing care attendant, maid--eases a "care deficit" in rich countries, while her absence creates a "care deficit" back home. Confronting a range of topics, from the fate of Vietnamese mail-order brides to the importation of Mexican nannies in Los Angeles and the selling of Thai girls to Japanese brothels, Global woman offers an unprecedented look at a world shaped by mass migration and economic exchange on an ever-increasing scale. In fifteen vivid essays--of which only four have been previously published--by a diverse and distinguished group of writers, collected and introduced by best selling authors Barbara Ehrenreich and Arlie Russell Hochschild, this anthology reveals a new era in which the main resource extracted from the third world is no longer gold or silver, but love

The second shift by Arlie Russell Hochschild( Book )
43 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When The Second Shift was first published in 1989, it was hailed as "a scream in the dark" and "a brilliant, urgently needed analysis ... of the working woman who has it all". Now, in the twenty-first century, The Second Shift remains as important and relevant as when it was first published. As the majority of women entered the workforce, sociologist and Berkeley professor Arlic Hochschild was one of the first to talk about what really happened in dual-career households. Many people were amazed to find that women were still responsible for the majority of child care and housework even though they also worked outside the home. Now, in this updated edition with a new introduction by the author, we discover how much things have, and have not, changed for women today."--BOOK JACKET

In this new collection of thirteen essays, Arlie Russell Hochschild-author of the groundbreaking exploration of emotional labor, The Managed Heart and The Outsourced Self-focuses squarely on the impact of social forces on the emotional side of intimate life. From the ""work"" it takes to keep personal life personal, put feeling into work, and empathize with others; to the cultural ""blur"" between market and home; the effect of a social class gap on family wellbeing; and the movement of care workers around the globe, Hochschild raises deep questions about the modern age. In an epony

The second shift : working families and the revolution at home by Arlie Russell Hochschild( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"More than twenty years ago, sociologist and University of California, Berkeley, professor Arlie Hochschild set off a tidal wave of conversation and controversy with his bestselling book, The Second Shift In it, she examined what really happens in dual-career households. Adding together time in paid work, child care, and housework, she found that working mothers put in a month of work a year more than their spouses. Updated for a workforce now half female, this edition cites a range of new studies and statistics and includes a new afterword in which Hochschild assesses how much-and how little-has changed for women today."--pub. desc

The outsourced self : what happens when we pay others to live our lives for us by Arlie Russell Hochschild( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We've long imagined the family as being apart from the marketplace, the one realm where the personal and the private hold sway. Yet as Arlie Russell Hochschild shows in The Outsourced Self, the market has quietly invaded our homes in a huge variety of ways--as we turn to dating services, wedding planners, eldercare workers, eldercare managers, life coaches, and sometimes even surrogate mothers across the world to bear our biological children. How, Hochschild asks, do we keep personal life feeling personal? Even if we never buy anything, why are we beginning to think of personal life as businesspeople look at profit and loss, return on investment, and the bottom line? Can't we find a better balance? Clear-eyed and deeply empathic, The Outsourced Self captures the most important unacknowledged trend of our time."--Publisher description

Venus and Mars ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Are men and women really that different? Society tends to emphasize differences more than similarities. This often leads to competition, and in some cases, inequality. Gender issues and stratification, the gender divide in the workplace, the impact of Title Seven, and the women's movement are explored in this lesson. As illustrated in the example of a female football team, it can take a lot of determination to defy the agents of socialization and overcome gender basis."
Face to face ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This lessons looks at how such aspects of social interaction as language, humor and emotion can shape and change the way we view the world around us. Nowhere is this interaction more visible than in the fusion of language and emotion which characterize the world of politics. But social interaction in the more mundane world of everyday life can be just as significant. This lesson begins with a stand-up comedy show that helps us further understand the significance of humor, as both a form of self-expression and as a culturally specific method of social interaction."

The Managed Heart Commercialization of Human Feeling, Twentieth Anniversary Edition, With a New Afterword by Arlie Russell Hochschild( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In private life we try to induce or suppress love, envy, and anger through deep acting or "emotional work," just as we manage our outer expressions through surface acting. But what happens when this system of adjusting emotions is adapted to commercial purposes? Hochschild examines the cost of this kind of "emotional labor." She vividly describes from a humanist and feminist perspective the process of estrangement from personal feelings and its role as an "occupational hazard" for one-third of America's workforce
