Format: Hardcover
As a professor, I assign this book in both my undergraduate political science class on gender inequality and my graduate level class on work/family policy. It offers important insights into the political economy of gender inequality in labor markets, politics, and the family and is written in a straightforward, accessible style. The argument is supported by quantitative analysis that my students can choose to read or not. I recommend it highly for anyone interested in the ways in which gender dynamics are structured by material circumstances. The answers are sometimes surprising but always convincing.
