Einstein's wife : work and marriage in the lives of five great twentieth-century women by Andrea Gabor( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents portraits of five women who were married to husbands in the same professional field as their own, while also helping the reputations of their spouses as well as achieving their own personal and professional goals. The five biographies focus on women who have achieved that balance between family and career. In the cases of scientist Mileva Maric (Albert Einstein's first wife) and artist Lee Krasner (painter Jackson Pollock's wife), both women sacrificed time and energy to advance their husbands' careers and provide harmonious domestic atmospheres (despite, in Krasner's case, a frequently drunken and abusive partner). Although the husbands of architect Denise Scott Brown and Nobel Prize-winning physicist Maria Goeppert Mayer encouraged their wives to pursue their careers, the women were hampered by the sexism rampant in their professions. In a closing interview, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor describes how she balanced the traditional woman's role with a successful judiciary career
After the education wars : how smart schools upend the business of reform by Andrea Gabor( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an entirely fresh take on school reform, business journalist and bestselling author Andrea Gabor argues that Bill Gates, Eli Broad, and other leaders of the prevailing education-reform movement have borrowed all the wrong lessons from the business world. After the Education Wars explains how the market-based measures and carrot-and-stick incentives informing today's reforms are out of sync with the nurturing culture that good schools foster and--contrary to popular belief--at odds with the best practices of thriving twenty-first-century companies as well."--Amazon
