The volume argues that real progress requires moving the focus from specific policies and practices towards more systemic organizational change. It examines the contexts and opportunities - global, international, national, sociopolitical, legal and economic - for this change. The book concludes that positive solutions are attainable but will require a rethinking of employment, with constructive partnerships at many different levels, and with work and family as a core strategic business issue.

`This collection of papers provides a coherent and compelling argument for rethinking employment policies and work processes in order to make space for family life.... Overall, this book is an excellent collection of papers that presents much new material and, by bringing together a range of different perspectives, goes a long way to setting out the issues, the context in which they need to be resolved and the options available. It is particularly valuable in providing the perspective of both employer and employee, and also some examples of positive outcomes from action research' - Social Policy
