Synopsis

At the heart of work/life problems is the increasing complexity of our modern lives and the many choices in careers and family life we face. This book with contributors from psychology, sociology, and economics offers a rich account of family-work scholarship.

Excerpt

To many, Rosebeth Moss Kanter's 1977 monograph Work and Family in the United States set the agenda for the study of the interplay between our family and work lives. One could view Ellen Ernst Kossek and Susan J. Lambert's provocative collection of chapters as a report card on how much we have learned in the last 25 years and as a statement of what our research agenda ought to be in the next quarter century. Particularly impressive is the degree to which the collection blurs traditional disciplinary boundaries among sociology, psychology, and economics, offering a rich account of family-work scholarship. Equally praiseworthy is that the contributors to the volume have not shied away from asserting the policy implications of their findings. Thus the book not only should enlighten our research community, but it also, appropriately so, should inform public debates on how workplaces can be made more family sensitive. We are very pleased to have Kossek and Lambert join our series.
