Editorial Reviews

?Two main themes emerge from the writings. First the work is a reminder that understanding of the family system requires an understanding of the eternal forces that help shape it: work, other organizations, and general cultural attitudes. Second, changing sex roles in this and other societies require a reevaluation of past concepts concerning the interdependence of family and work. The collection is held together by competent editing and the attempt to understand family-work interdependence in a global way. It should stand as a significant source of departure for family sociologists in the 1980s.?-Choice
