Description - The Part-Time Paradox by Cynthia Fuchs Epstein
Choosing to work part-time may seem like an attractive option for many workers, and it is a fact of the modern workplace that the availability of part-time work is increasing. However, the authors of this study find that there are cultural and social meanings attached to part-time work which suggest that it is in fact not such an easy option. Using case studies of legal professionals, this book highlights not only the negative sides, but also the coping strategies utilized to overcome the part-time paradox.
