The papers discuss the social and economic forces that have enabled women to explore new and expanding roles, and examine the profound effect the resulting changes are having and will continue to have on the economic and social potential of our nation. "Looking Backward in Order to Look Forward: Women, Work, and Social Values in America" puts the topic in perspective. The causes and implications of changes in women's participation in the labor force are discussed in "Family and Work: The Social Life Cycle of Women." The importance to the family of decisions relating to allocation of time and the need for imputing a value to home services and free time are the focus of "Home Work, Market Work, and the Allocation of Time.""Women in Work Organizations" shows the division of the labor market into men's and women's jobs as it operates in a large private firm. Some consequences of women's greater financial independence are analyzed in "Implications of Women's Employment for Home and Family Life.""Impact of Equal Opportunity Laws" finds some impetus towards equal opportunity, while "Requisites for Equality" urges greater political participation by women to bring about measures assuring more equitable treatment. The collection closes with "The Economy Ahead of Us: Will Women Have Different Roles." (Sa)

Rethinking America's security : beyond Cold War to new world order by Graham T Allison( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Cold War, American national security seemed clearly defined: to protect against the overarching threat of the Soviet Union and Communist expansion. But with the demise of Communism, America must reconsider its role in the world as dramatically as it did after victory in World War II. As the only real superpower, how should we use our military strength? What are the lessons of the Persian Gulf War? How and when do we cut back on our defense and national security establishment? In the New World Order a country's social cohesion and economic strength at home are increasingly important determinants of its success. To what extent does America need to reconsider its national security in domestic terms--i.e., improving economic competitiveness and learning to live within its means? In this new collection, sponsored by the American Assembly and the Council on Foreign Relations, a group of leading experts assesses the changing conception of national security in the 1990s and its implications for American policy at home and abroad
