Based on a sweeping, ten country study, The Work-Family Interface in Global Context comprises the most comprehensive and rigorous cross-cultural study of the work-family interface to date. Just as work-family conflict is associated with negative consequences for workers, organizations, and societies, so too can the work and family domains interact positively to enhance or enrich one another. Drawing on qualitative, quantitative, and policy-based data, chapters in this collection explore the influence of culture on the work-family interface in order to help researchers and managers understand the applicability of work-family models in a variety of contexts and further conceptualize work-family interactions through the development of a more universal knowledge.

'Based on data collected from nearly 3,000 employed partnered parents across 10 diverse countries, Project 3535 represents a significant contribution to the study of cross-national work-family issues. By detailing the process used to conduct this ambitious project and sharing the lessons learned, the researchers have provided the international research community with an invaluable resource for conducting cross-national research. This volume is a must have for any researcher interested in cross-cultural research collaborations.' -Tammy D. Allen, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida, USA
'The Work-Family Interface in Global Context represents a culmination of years of exemplary cross-cultural collaborative research on the cultural and social/organizational policy underpinnings of the operation of the work-family interface. The book is unique in its comprehensiveness of coverage, methodological rigor and approaches, and the integrated theoretical framework which underpins the chapters. It is a delightfully rich source of intellectual wealth to students of cross-cultural/international management and of actionable knowledge to organizations and policy makers concerned to enhance the well-being of their employees and citizens.' -Samuel Aryee, Surrey Business School, University of Surrey, UK
'This is an outstanding exemplar of work-family research across cultures. The studies presented in this book are conceptually sound and methodologically rigorous, and they provide a solid foundation for future scholars interested in understanding work-family issues around the world.' -Margaret A. Shaffer, Michael F. Price Chair of International Business, University of Oklahoma
