Bogomtale fra forlaget.

How does working at home change people's activity patterns, social networks and their living and working spaces? How will it change the way we plan houses and communities in the future? Here, Gurstein combines a background in planning, sociology of work and feminist theory with quantitative data from ten years of original research, including in-depth interviews and surveys, to understand the socio-spatial impact of home-based work on daily life patterns.
