Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Reader in Gender, Work and Organization is the best and most up to date compilation of research and theory which examines the interplay among these key factors shaping our daily lives. The structure of the book combines with the section overviews to provide a theoretically and practically useful framework for examining this vast literature and designing new research at the frontier of this important topic. This should be in every serious social scientist's personal library." David A Thomas, Harvard Business School

"They have put together not only a very informative reader, but also one that will provoke discussion and debate in the classroom. I recommend it highly." Barbara A. Gutek, University of Michigan
