In raising probing questions about the relationship between gender power, class power and enterprise, this book brings a new and insightful perspective to the study of family capitalism. Mulholland explores the links between class as a resource and enterprise, the connections between the organization of the sexual division of labour and enterprise, the relationship between masculinity and enterprise and the manner in which emotional labour and domesticity also contribute to the construction of business. Based on a regional study of newly created and inherited enterprise across different sectors, interviews were conducted amongst seventy major business families and one hundred family members.
