              In Strangers in Their Own Land, the renowned sociologist Arlie Hochschild embarks on a thought-provoking journey from her liberal hometown of Berkeley, California, deep into the heart of the bayou of Lake Charles, Louisianaa stronghold of the conservative right. Determined to for...m friendships with people who oppose many of the ideas she famously champions, Hochschild unexpectedly finds common ground and quickly warms to the people she meetsamong them a Tea Party supporter whose town has been swallowed by a sinkhole created by a disaster at a gas drilling facility and a pastor s wife who calls Rush Limbaugh my brave heart people whose concerns are actually ones that all Americans share: the desire for community, the embrace of family, and hopes for their children. Strangers in Their Own Land dismisses the commonplace liberal idea that these voters are being duped into voting against their own interests. Instead, Hochschild finds lives ripped apart by the disappearance of jobs, stagnating wages, an elusive American dreamand political choices that are more rational than they might seem. Hochschild draws on her expert knowledge of the sociology of emotion to help us understand what it feels like to live in red America. Along the way she finds answers to some of the crucial drivers of American politics: why do the people who would seem to benefit most from liberal government intervention abhor the very idea?

              From the famed author of the bestselling The Second Shift and The Time Bind, a pathbreaking look at the transformation of private life in our for-profit worldThe family has long been a haven in a heartless world, the one place immune to market forces and economic calculations, wh...ere the personal, the private, and the emotional hold sway. Yet as Arlie Russell Hochschild shows in The Outsourced Self, that is no longer the case: everything that was once part of private life--love, friendship, child rearing--is being transformed into packaged expertise to be sold back to confused, harried Americans.Drawing on hundreds of interviews and original research, Hochschild follows the incursions of the market into every stage of intimate life. From dating services that train you to be the CEO of your love life to wedding planners who create a couple's personal narrative ; from nameologists (who help you name your child) to wantologists (who help you name your goals); from commercial surrogate farms in India to hired mourners who will scatter your loved one's ashes in the ocean of your choice--Hochschild reveals a world in which the most intuitive and emotional of human acts have become work for hire.Sharp and clear-eyed, Hochschild is full of sympathy for overstressed, outsourcing Americans, even as she warns of the market's threat to the personal realm they are striving so hard to preserve.
