Editorial Reviews

All except one of the contributions published here are based on articles which first appeared in the Journal of adolescence during the last five years. In most cases authors have substantially revised their papers, although some have chosen to write commentaries or postscripts bringing the material up to date. Ten essays seek to account for experiences of unwaged work, both in industrialized nations and in the developing world. They also seek to redress the invisibility of these forms of work in Marxist analysis, breaking down many false distinctions between workplace and home, market economy and family economy, and public and private spheres. Paper edition unseen, $16.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
