CHOICE Review

Published under the auspices of the Industrial Relations Research Association, this excellent collection addresses all aspects of women's participation in the workforce. Authored by recognized scholars in history, economics, business, and the behavioral sciences, each chapter presents in-depth analytical treatment of its subject with emphasis on the most recent research. A detailed, up-to-date bibliography follows each chapter. Not only are more familiar subjects refreshingly presented (historical perspectives, sex discrimination in employment, women's earnings, and problems of minority workers), but less common topics are also comprehensively examined (progress of women in management, the middle-aged woman worker, women in academic professions, and international workforce comparisons). Of particular interest are discussions of the validity of sex-role stereotypes as a basis for women's underrepresentation in management; a summary of tables of national equality legislation and enforcement machinery in Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, the UK, and the US; and a profile of the middle-aged woman worker that refutes the common perception about her reentry into the workforce and her lack of work experience and marketable skills. In summary, this volume is unique for its broad scope and level of presentation and its analysis of current research and identification of future research requirements. The discriminating presentation of information and the numerous citings of recent empirical research make this work a mandatory addition to academic libraries serving upper-division and graduate students.-R.
