The articles in the Third Edition of Workplace/Women's Place are highly accessible to undergraduates. The book's interdisciplinary approach offers a social-science emphasis, documenting important trends in women's work lives with quantitative and qualitative evidence from both scholarly and journalistic sources.

This edition probes the continuing challenges that women face as they enter and participate in the world of work. The new articles illuminate factors that influence women's preparation for work and the occupations they choose. The articles also demonstrate the challenges women encounter in the workplace and in seeking to balance the demands of work and family life. Work experiences of diverse groups of women highlight both their unique experiences and the similarity of experiences that cross-cut racial and ethnic identity. In addition, this anthology provides an examination and assessment of a number of policies that have developed as a response to the changing labor force participation of women over the past three decades.

Major concepts are highlighted and explained in the introductions to the units, which also provide background information. "Food for Thought and Application" questions at the end of each reading are included to encourage the synthesis of information and to explore possible solutions to some of women's most vexing problems in today's workplace.

This edition also includes an appendix of data and trends relating to women and work, including labor-force participation rates, earnings, the wage gap, occupational concentration, and family-work data.

Review:


"This anthology is accessible and informative, underscoring a number of critical issues germane to how women participate in and experience the workforce. Its interdisciplinarity allows for a more comprehensive examination of the issues and ideas discussed."--Karen Flynn, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


"All the articles are interesting, enlightening, and insightful. The concise and engaging openings use rhetorical questions, personal experiences, and accessible references to research findings, everyday examples, and popular culture to ease students into each unit and help them begin thinking about the concepts/issues to be discussed."--Carla Harrell, Old Dominion University
