A sociological study of how the birth of first and second children affects parents. It uses in-depth interviews with 20 couples conducted during the third, sixth, and ninth month postpartum, to monitor changes in the division of labor and attitudes of parents, and to explore the societal context in which these changes occur. Central to the book is a social structural and social interactional explanation of how couples traditionalize during the transition to parenthood.
`The authors point out (and this reviewer readily agrees) that several things make this book unique. First, it is grounded in sociological theory...Second, the book is about early parenthood from the parental perspective...Last, the study explores both first- and second-time parenthood.' -- Contemporary Sociology, March 1982, Vol 11 No 2
