11 HAYS, SHARON. The Cultural Contradictions Of Motherhood.
Yale University Press, New Haven and London: 1996. 0300066821 / 9780300066821 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Winner of the 1997 Distinguished Book Award sponsored by the American Sociological Association Culture Section. Received Honorable Mention for the 1998 Distinguished Scholarly Publication Award given by the American Sociological Association. Working mothers today confront not only conflicting demands on their time and energy but also conflicting ideas about how they are to behave: they must be nurturing and unselfish while engaged in child rearing but competitive and ambitious at work. As more and more women enter the workplace, it would seem reasonable for society to make mothering a simpler and more efficient task. Instead, Sharon Hays points out in this original and provocative book, an ideology of "intensive mothering" has developed that only exacerbates the tensions working mothers face. Drawing on ideas about mothering since the Middle Ages, on contemporary childrearing manuals, and on in-depth interviews with mothers from a range of social classes, Hays traces the evolution of the ideology of intensive mothering—an ideology that holds the individual mother primarily responsible for child rearing and dictates that the process is to be child-centered, expert-guided, emotionally absorbing, labor-intensive, and financially expensive. Hays argues that these ideas about appropriate mothering stem from a fundamental ambivalence about a system based solely on the competitive pursuit of individual interests. In attempting to deal with our deep uneasiness about self-interest, we have imposed unrealistic and unremunerated obligations and commitments on mothering, making it into an opposing force, a primary field on which this cultural ambivalence is played out. Sharon Hays is assistant professor of sociology and women's studies at the University of Virginia. Includes an Index.
