CHOICE Review

The stated objective of this handbook is the presentation of a broad overview of women's work experience in the US. The editors also intend this volume to serve as a reference tool, pointing the interested researcher to additional sources of information in the field of women and work. Organized into eight sections, the handbook has 150 essay entries authored by researchers selected or solicited by an editorial board. The sections cover women's labor force participation, approaches to analyzing women and work, women in diverse occupations, factors influencing occupational choice, legal factors, the organizational context of work, work and family, and cross-cultural and international issues. The volume reflects a sociological and institutionalist approach to women and work. The essays are relatively short, and each has its own references and bibliography. Comprehensive and useful subject and author indexes. A valuable reference tool for any women's studies or women and work collection. All levels. A. Bunton Cottey College
