While women employees have made some gains, the workplace remains skewed in favor of men globally. In 24 essays, 38 contributors dissect such trends in the contexts of: gender and other identities (race and ethnicity); economics, societal structure, and the changing nature of work; organizational, group, and interpersonal processes; careers and the quality of life; and organizational initiatives. The final section reviews methodological issues in conducting research on the gender- work interface. While there is an index entry for home-based work, there is none for as-yet unpaid housework. Includes a 100-page bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
