Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This quantitative study of women belonging to the baby boom generation, their mothers and their daughters, offers abundant data documenting changes in employment, education, marriage, and family patterns and attitudes. The researchers find that new behaviors preceded rather than followed changes in attitude, and they conclude that the transitions are essentially complete: Men and women are now more alike than different in their life course expectations and activity. While comparing women across age and racial lines, the analysts neglect class. Nevertheless, scholars will still find this a valuable resource. Recommended for academic and research libraries. Cynthia Harrison, Federal Judicial Ctr., Washington, D.C.
