Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"“Heidi Gottfried’s synthesis and original analysis is a welcome addition to research trying to grasp the complexities of globalization from a feminist perspective. As review, critique and analysis, Gender, Work, and Economy makes an important contribution to our understanding of gendered social process, structure and relations.”
Work Employment and Society

“With its nuanced and systematic review of all the important issues, this will become a classic work on the field of gender and work.”
Sylvia Walby, Lancaster University

“Gottfried gives a thorough gendered analysis of work and economy in our globalizing world, showing theoretically and empirically how gender is central in these processes. This book provides essential grounding for future work in this area.”
Joan Acker, University of Oregon

“Gottfried has written a thoughtful, comprehensive, theoretically insightful review of the field of gender and work, locating the discussion within the evolving context of globalization. The book would make a terrific backbone for an advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate seminar in gender and work or gender and globalization.”
Leslie Salzinger, University of California, Berkeley
