Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focusing on the patterns and trends of women's employment, finds a systematic and cultural bias in underestimating women's real contributions to national production and family welfare in the Arabic world. Examines the flaws in the statistical information available, and the factors that limit the scope of women's employment, such as educational opportunities and attainments and prevalent social norms and discriminatory practices. Also explores the policy implications of the situation. Published for the World Institute for Development Economies Research of the United Nations University in Helsinki. Paper edition (unseen), $29.95. Distributed in the US by Humanities Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
