In this lucid and subtle investigation, Sylvia Walby, one of the world's leading authorities on gender shows how undoubted increases in opportunity for women in Europe and America have been accompanied by new forms of inequality. Individual chapters look at the phenomenon of flexible work and its influence on the total labour market, at gender politics and social theory, at the gendering of citizenship and nationhood and at gender in the context of European integration. This eagerly awaited successor to Walby's classic Theorising Patriarchy will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in how questions of gender remake and are remade by the social and economic conditions in which they occur.
