9780131851542: Economics of Women, Men, and Work (5th Edition)

A current summary and synthesis of research and data on gender issues in the labor market, this book presents readers with a single volume that thoroughly explores gender issues in the workplace and in the family. Chapter topics include women and men: changing roles in a changing economy, the family as an economic unit, the allocation of time between the household and the labor market, differences in occupations and earnings, recent developments in the labor market, changing work roles and the family, and gender differences in other countries. For use by practicing economists and social scientists, and for men and women interested in learning about their place within-and effect upon-the labor market.

From the Publisher:

A complete overview of the economics of women, men, and work in the labor market and in the household.

From the Back Cover:

Totally updated and revised, the fourth edition reflects recent changes in the labor market and in the family. Like previous editions, this text offers the most current summary and synthesis of research and data on gender issues in these areas in a single volume. Here are just a few of the features you can look forward to in the new edition:

  • The text highlights recent developments in the labor market: the declining gender pay gap; the effect of changes in welfare policy on single mothers' employment; growing wage inequality; the declining employment prospects of less educated men; and the rise of nonstandard employment arrangements.
  • All discussions concerning policy have been thoroughly revised. Updates include expanded discussion of the glass ceiling, affirmative action, and anti-discrimination legislation; policies that affect paid work and families; the 1996 welfare legislation (TANF) and its impact on welfare case loads and economic well-being; child support enforcement; tax polices; child care; and more.
  • Discussion questions have been added at the end of each chapter to stimulate further discussion among students and instructors. Answers to the discussion questions, along with the transparency masters for all figures and tables, can found on the instructor's Web site at www.prenhall.com/blau.
