Editorial Reviews

Diane P. Freedman & Martha S. Holmes
[The collection's] contributors frankly and movingly convey "the difficulties and benefits of combining a full professional life with caring for [others]"....[T]he book articulates the problems facing academics today and gestures toward their history....[I]ncludes...wrenching tales, enough to make us aware how many different families there are to be tracked.
