9781447318101: Father and Daughter: Patriarchy, Gender, and Social Science

Policy analyst Richard Titmuss became famous as one of the most staunch and outspoken defenders of the welfare state and its underlying values, and in this book his daughter, Ann Oakley, offers us an inside view of his life and work. Oakley, a prominent sociologist herself, mixes biography and autobiography, telling the story of her father’s life in light of her own experience and drawing on a mix of sources including personal interviews and archival research to set their family history in the larger context of social, economic, and political change in the twentieth century.

Carrying the intellectual force of an innovative thinker, yet written in clear, compelling language, Father and Daughter is a family story that is at the same time a reflection on gender, patriarchy, and the politics of memory and identity.

About the Author:

Ann Oakley is professor of sociology and social policy at the Institute of Education at the University of London and the author of many books, including poetry, fiction, biography, and autobiography.

Review:

“[A] riveting book. . . . Oakley has put together a collection of short essays and biographical fragments that explore not just her own unusual family life but key moments and personalities in the history of twentieth-century social research. . . . Ultimately, she has produced not a tell-all biography but a multifaceted portrait of a brilliant, if insecure, human being who worked unceasingly for the ‘public welfare’, and his only child, who has done the same, if in a very different fashion. Oakley has a fascinating chapter on her own career, which has been highly successful in bald terms but is studded with the usual discriminations, and she ends with a long, hard, pessimistic look at the position of women in academia today. . . . There is very little direct expression of emotion so that when it comes it is surprisingly affecting.” (Guardian (UK))

Father and Daughter: Patriarchy, Gender and Social Science is the legendary feminist sociologist Ann Oakley’s brilliant tribute to her father, the late Richard Titmuss. He was a towering figure in the creation of social policy as an academic subject and yet we learn from this narrative about the complexities of living a life of equality.” (Miriam E. David, professor emerita, University College London Institute of Education Times Higher Education)

“Ann Oakley's Father and Daughter: Patriarchy, Gender and Social Science. . . [is] riveting and revealing about herself and her father, Richard Titmuss, whose work inspired me to work with him as a graduate student at the London School of Economics.” (Pat Thane, King’s College London Times Higher Education)

Father and Daughter is particularly powerful. . . . The writing moves between scholarly exactness, dreamy reverie, and pained resentment.” (Stefan Collini, University of Cambridge London Review of Books)

“This intriguing and multilayered book is . . . of great interest for a range of audiences, both within and outside social work and the social sciences. . . . A moving story that [Oakley] tells well and in all its complexity.” (British Journal of Social Work)

“Intriguing. . . . A very important contribution to historical and sociological scholarship. It is an original and carefully researched corrective to the existing ‘business as usual’ institutional and intellectual history of conflicts and tensions in the development of sociology, social administration, social policy, and the professionalization of social work.” (E. Stina Lyon, London South Bank University Times Higher Education)

“Oakley’s complicated story of how she is still taking stock of her relationship with Richard Titmuss is one of family dynamics and secrets, of politics at the grand and small scale, and of the ongoing process of making sense of who we are.” (Graham Crow University of Edinburgh)

“A fascinating study of an eminent father by his eminent daughter. This respected sociologist, feminist, and novelist offers a true ‘insider’s view’ of their relationship.” (Cherie Booth, QC)

“In Father and Daughter, Oakley revisits her childhood years and explores the causal links between her family’s fraught domestic relationships and her father’s idiosyncratic ‘socialist view of inequality’ that excluded gender issues from its policy concerns. This superbly researched memoir will become a classic of its kind—albeit a highly controversial one.” (Robert Pinker London School of Economics and Political Science)

“I love Oakley’s writing. She interrogates quite beautifully ‘the shadowy spaces’ in which public and private lives overlap and the effect this has, particularly on women.” (Melissa Benn author of "What Should We Tell Our Daughters?: The Pleasures and Pressures of Growing Up Female")

Descripción Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Father and daughter provides an unique `insider perspective on two key figures in twentieth-century British social science. Ann Oakley, a highly respected sociologist and best-selling writer, draws on her own life and that of her father, Richard Titmuss, a well-known policy analyst and defender of the welfare state, to offer an absorbing view of the connections between private lives and public work. Using an innovative mix of biography, autobiography, intellectual history, archives, and personal interviews, some of which have not been previously available to the public, she provides a compelling narrative about gender, patriarchy, methodology, and the politics of memory and identity. This fascinating analysis defies the usual social science publications to offer a truly distinctive account which will be of wide interest. Nº de ref. de la librería AAJ9781447318101
