Summary
  • "The authors of The Two-Body Problem examine policies and practices used by colleges and universities to respond to the needs of dual-career couples within the economic, legal, and demographic contexts of higher education
  • Drawing upon an extensive survey of public and private institutions as well as detailed case studies of institutions taking distinctive approaches to this problem, the authors find that type of institution - location, size, governance, mission, and resource availability - is a critical factor in determining dual-career employment options
  • The Two-Body Problem describes various accommodation models in-depth and provides valuable information for college and university administrators responsible for hiring faculty and supporting their performance."--Jacket
