Small Family Business in Hong Kong: Accumulation and Accommodation
This book examines the relationship between work and family in small family business in Hong Kong, based on data obtained from in-depth interviews on married couples running small retail shops. It was found that despite the perceived advantage of flexibility, running a small family business did not necessarily result in a working pattern compatible with family needs.
In studies on small family business, the contribution by the wives was often overlooked. This book pays special attention to the part played by women in the setting up and running of small family business.
This book will be a useful reference for people interested in qualitative sociology, small business studies, family studies and women's studies.
