520    Working mothers today confront not only conflicting 
       demands on their time and energy but also conflicting 
       ideas about how they are to behave: they must be nurturing
       and unselfish while engaged in child rearing but 
       competitive and ambitious at work. As more and more women 
       enter the workplace, it would seem reasonable for society 
       to make mothering a simpler and more efficient task. 
       Instead, Sharon Hays points out in this original and 
       provocative book, an ideology of "intensive mothering" has
       developed that only exacerbates the tensions working 
       mothers face. Drawing on ideas about mothering since the 
       Middle Ages, on contemporary child-rearing manuals, and on
       in-depth interviews with mothers from a range of social 
       classes, Hays traces the evolution of the ideology of 
       intensive mothering - an ideology that holds the 
       individual mother primarily responsible for child rearing 
       and dictates that the process is to be child-centered, 
       expert-guided, emotionally absorbing, labor-intensive, and
       financially expensive. Hays argues that these ideas about 
       appropriate mothering stem from a fundamental ambivalence 
       about a system based solely on the competitive pursuit of 
       individual interests. In attempting to deal with our deep 
       uneasiness about self-interest, we have imposed 
       unrealistic and unremunerated obligations and commitments 
       on mothering, making it into an opposing force, a primary 
       field on which this cultural ambivalence is played out.
