Do babies matter? : gender and family in the ivory tower by Mary Ann Mason( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new generation of scholars differs in many ways from its predecessor of just a few decades ago. Academia once consisted largely of men in traditional single-earner families. Today, men and women fill the doctoral student ranks in nearly equal numbers and most will experience both the benefits and challenges of living in dual-income households. This generation also has new expectations and values, notably the desire for flexibility and balance between careers and other life goals. However, changes to the structure and culture of academia have not kept pace with young scholars' desires for work-family balance. Do Babies Matter? is the first comprehensive examination of the relationship between family formation and the academic careers of men and women. The book begins with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, moves on to early and mid-career years, and ends with retirement. Individual chapters examine graduate school, how recent PhD recipients get into the academic game, the tenure process, and life after tenure. The authors explore the family sacrifices women often have to make to get ahead in academia and consider how gender and family interact to affect promotion to full professor, salaries, and retirement. Concrete strategies are suggested for transforming the university into a family-friendly environment at every career stage. The book draws on over a decade of research using unprecedented data resources, including the Survey of Doctorate Recipients, a nationally representative panel survey of PhDs in America, and multiple surveys of faculty and graduate students at the ten-campus University of California system
Understanding the divorce cycle : the children of divorce in their own marriages by Nicholas H Wolfinger( )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Growing up in a divorced family leads to a variety of difficulties for adult offspring in their own partnerships. One of the best known and most powerful is the divorce cycle, the transmission of divorce from one generation to the next. This book draws on two national social survey data sets to examine how the divorce cycle has transformed family life in contemporary America. Compared to people from intact families, the children of divorce are more likely to marry as teenagers but less likely to wed overall. They are more likely to marry other people from divorced families, more likely to dissolve second and third marriages, and less likely to marry their live-in partners. Yet some of the adverse consequences of parental divorce have abated even as divorce itself has proliferated and become more socially accepted. Taken together, these findings show how parental divorce is a strong force in people's lives and society as a whole."--Jacket
Fragile families and the marriage agenda by Lori Kowaleski-Jones( )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, the product of the 2003 Rocco C. and Marion S. Siciliano Forum at the University of Utah, explores various issues related to fragile families. In addition to addressing the proposition that government involvement can raise marriage rates, this book contains legal and theoretical perspectives on the marriage agenda, addresses some of the causes and consequences of offspring well-being in fragile families, and considers the importance of fathers."--Jacket
