Overview

Since reunification, eastern German women have had fewer employment opportunities and lower job security than they did under communism. In this volume, 11 contributions from Kolinsky (emeritus, modern German studies, Keele U.), Nickel (women's studies, Humboldt U.) and other academics consider how eastern German women have dealt with unfamiliar barriers to employment. Gender roles are examined in three main areas: the education system, the family, and the political arena. Distributed in the U.S. by ISBS. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
