Summary
  • ""Iversen and Rosenbluth develop a microlevel bargaining model, embedded in a macrolevel comparative argument. Their illuminating analysis is a major contribution to comparative political economy and gender studies"--ROBERT O. KEOHANE, Princeton University" ""This book provides an exceptionally clear, cogent, and interdisciplinary analysis of the links between childrearing and women's individual, political, and cultural bargaining power. Its broad scope and comparative methodology provide indispensable insights into the evolution of gender inequality."-NANCY FOLBRE, author of Greed, Lust, and Gender: A History of Economic Ideas" ""A major, potentially seminal work. One of the fundamental challenges in the social sciences concerns how to link microlevel processes with macrolevel behaviors and outcomes. This book provides a model on how to do that, offering a methodological approach that has wide applicability throughout the social sciences. It also offers numerous substantive lessons pertaining to the topic of how economic changes shape families and labor markets."-JAMES DRUCKMAN, Northwestern University" ""This elegantly argued book investigates the economic determinants of gender inequality and links sex-based discrimination to stages of production. When brawn trumps brain, Neanderthal sex relations prevail, however, when gentler skills reward achievement, women hold their own. The authors write in a lively style, rich with many wonderful facts and insights, and the overwhelming impression at the end of the volume is that patriarchy is not long for this world."-CATHIE JO MARTIN, Boston University"--Jacket
  • This book presents an original and groundbreaking approach to gender inequality. Looking at women's power in the home, in the workplace, and in politics from a political economy perspective, the authors demonstrate that equality is tied to demand for women's labor outside the home, which is a function of structural, political, and institutional conditions.--[book jacket]
