Understanding Diversity of Work in the 21st Century and Its Impact on the Work-Family Area of Study

The growth and development of work-family research closely parallel trends in the institutions of work and family.

This chapter focuses on the institution of work, exploring how the evolution of this institution, particularly in the Uni ted States, has shaped work-family scholarship.
