The growth in part-time employment has been one of the most striking features in industrialized economies over the past forty years. This book discusses the controversial debates surrounding the subject; is part-time work better than unemployment or is social welfare a disincentive to taking up part-time work? Is this kind of work becoming an increasingly normal part of most people's working lives, or does it remain a female ghetto of low pay, low pensions and low labour standards? The book presents for the first time a systematically comparative analysis of the common and divergent patterns in the use of part-time work in Europe, America and the Pacific Rim. It brings together sociologists and economists in this wide-ranging and comprehensive survey, tackling such areas as gender issues, ethnic questions and the differences between certain national economies.
