Description

This title was first published in 2000: Both the world of work and the sphere of family life are "greedy", demanding time and energy of participants. These demands often conflict so that people have to make choices and balance requirements of both. This book explores ways families meet the challenges of work and family balance in modern societies. Drawing from work of researchers in nine countries on four continents, the complex interaction of workplace practices, social policies and family values is highlighted.
