This book moves beyond existing scholarship by using quantitative, nationally representative survey data to theorize how power dynamics, as reflected in housework performance, help us understand broader family variations. The authors investigate how knowing who cleans the house explains how households of differing forms, demographics and compositions operate, both cross-sectionally and over the life course of the household.
