Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The objectives of this particular volume are to demonstrate the role of industrial and organizational psychology in the study of work—family dynamics and to stimulate the readership to 'increased interest and activity in this area.' Zedeck and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology have accomplished their objectives by providing something for everybody. The twelve chapters in the volume collectively span individual, family, organizational, and societal levels of analysis; discuss theory, empirical research, and professional practices; illustrate cross-cultural settings for work—family linkages; and use quantitative methods, case presentations, and historical analyses. Indeed, the chapters' diverse perspectives represent the book's greatest strength."

"There will be many times when you'll stop and say to yourself, 'I never thought about it this way.' That's a pretty strong Andorsement of any book whose purpose is to stretch the boundaries of an area and the minds of its readers."
