"In Raising Brooklyn, Tamara Mose Brown presents a vibrant account of the robust social worlds created by West Indian babysitters...[she] has taken us inside a frequently seen but little-understood social world and has unpacked how it works to nurture its members."

-Cameron Macdonald, American Journal of Sociology

"The Playdate is a very engaging book...this work has deep implication for how we understand the reproduction of class inequality in American life."-Emily W. Kane, Professor of Sociology at Bates College

"...Written in an engaging manner, this book will be of interest not only to qualitative social scientists who blur the work-family boundaries, but to anyone who struggles with maintaining a home life and a career."
—Patti Adler, University of Colorado at Boulder, and Peter Adler, Professor of Sociology and Criminology, University of Denver
