Summary The book "Family, Work and Parenting: International Perspectives" portrays the debate and research produced in different countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil and Portugal) on the theme of reconciliation of professional roles, family and parenting. Proposes a theoretical analysis, supported by empirical studies, pointing out the social implications of the challenge of reconciliation in families. This is a theme present, constituting a major concern of the European political agenda. This work is aimed at researchers, practitioners and students of social areas. Studies on families, work and everyday life, particularly this book on “Family, work and parenting: International perspectives”, are always fascinating, since our own everyday life is concerned: we feel we are the subjects of these studies. The work-family-leisure issue has been an important field of research in social sciences over the past few decades. Researchers first studied human activities separately within these three main domains. -- website
