About the Authors
  • During the last twenty years vast numbers of working age men have moved completely out of the labor market into "early retirement" or "long-term sickness" and to take on new household roles. These trends contrast greatly to rising labor market participation among women. Based on research in the U.K. presented in an international perspective, this book offers a detailed exploration of the varied circumstances "detached men" are living in and challenges assumptions about the true state of the labor market.

    • Radical re-appraisal of nature of work and extent of unemployment among men
    • Based on unique in-depth, cross disciplinary reseach
    • Major contribution to debates about 'welfare to work' policies in UK and elsewhere
