"Amy Marcus-Newhall, Diane Halpern, and Sherylle Tan have compiled the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary volume on work and family. The Changing Realities of Work and Family
brings togetherthe best researchers in this field and some extraordinary practitioners to cover an impressive array of topics from several vantage points. The editors skillfully combine contributions that point to the common experiences adults workers face in combining employment with caring for families but also carefully remind us of important differences among workers and families that are often overlooked in this field. The book will be an asset to work/family researchers and professionals as well as an excellent primer for the classroom."
