Gender and Economics: A European Perspective provides an introduction to gender studies in economics. This is a rapidly expanding field in which textbooks are urgently necessary. The contributors give comprehensive coverage of the economic situation of women throughout Europe. The authors approach the subject at three different levels.
• The economic theory of gender and economics
• The different positions of men and women in the economy, their earning power and the division of labour within the family
• European policy and law, and how this is evolving.
Giving a unique balance of theoretical and empirical data this book will be of great use to students of Labour Economics. It will also provide a wider view for all students of micro and macro economics.
