The Work and Family Handbook is a comprehensive edited volume, which reviews a wide range of disciplinary perspectives across the social sciences on the study of work-family relationships, theory, and methods. The changing demographics of the labor force has resulted in an expanded awareness and understanding of the intricate relations between work and family dimensions in people's lives. For the first time, the efforts of scholars working in multiple disciplines are organized together to provide a comprehensive overview of the perspectives and methods that have been applied to the study of work and family. In this book, the leading work-family scholars in the fields of social work, psychology, sociology, organizational behavior, human resource management, business, and other disciplines provide chapters that are both accessible and compelling. This book demonstrates how cross-disciplinary comparisons of perspective and method reveal new insights on the needs of working families, the challenges faced by those who study them, and how to formulate policy on their behalf.

Review:

"This handbook is an important resource for those interested in any aspect of work-family research. Extensive chapter bibliographies; detailed subject index makes it easy to locate topics. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduate through professional collections."
―CHOICE

"...the 'Handbook' represents a rich and valuable collection that will be important for any scholar whose research and teaching focuses on work, family, or the links between the two. For sociologists with an interest in work and family, the volume is a rich source of stimulating insights and findings from other disciplines....will also be useful to work-family researchers who would like to broaden their methodological repertoires."
―Contemporary Sociology

"The Pitt-Catsouphes, Kossek, and Sweet edited volume is a must read for scholars and practitioners interested in the field of work and family. The book provides important work/family insights for individuals and corporations and poses the next set of questions that will drive important discussions and research over the next decade."
―Linda K. Stroh
Loyola University of Chicago

"The Work and Family Handbook is a unique, comprehensive, and much needed addition to the burgeoning field of work-family studies. With insightful overviews and cutting edge scholarship from a veritable 'who's who' of researchers, Pitt-Catsouphes, Kossek, and Sweet have given us an indispensable volume that deserves a place on the bookshelf of every scholar who wants to know where the field stands today and where it is going."
―Kathleen Gerson
New York University

"The Work and Family Handbook will help faculty to develop work-family content for their classes. Students will be particularly interested in the chapters that introduce different research methodologies. The Handbook is a 'must read' resource for graduate students who have an interest in work/life issues."
―Stewart D. Friedman
University of Pennsylvania

"The editors have compiled an in-depth, accessible, and well-written volume addressing what is known about the field of work and family... I highly recommend The Work and Family Handbook as a resource guide to family scholars and as a text for teaching advanced undergraduate and graduate students." - Susan J. Ferguson, Grinnell College
