In the last half-century, radical changes have rippled through the workplace and the home from Boston to Mumbai. In the face of rapid globalization, these changes affect us all, and we can no longer confine ourselves to addressing working and social conditions within our own borders without simultaneously addressing them on a global scale. Based on over a thousand in-depth interviews and survey data from more than 55,000 families spanning five continents, Jody Heymann's Forgotten Families presents the first truly global account of how the changing conditions of work affect us all. Rich in individual stories and deeply human, Forgotten Families proposes innovative and imaginative ideas for solving the problems of the truly belabored together as a global community.
