Surveying current research findings, social trends, and public controversies, Work and Family in America examines the changing cultures of the workplace, family, and home.

* Covers the initial research on work-family from the 1970s and 1980s to the recent research showing that men are experiencing significant amounts of work-family stress as they become more involved with family life while the culture of the workplace remains largely unresponsive
