Key issues in women's work : female diversity and the polarisation of women's employment by Catherine Hakim( )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work-lifestyle choices in the 21st Century : preference theory by Catherine Hakim( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Hakim presents a new, multi-disciplinary theory for explaining and predicting current and future patterns of women's choice between employment and family work. Preference theory is the first theory developed specifically to explain women's behaviour and choices. As such, it constitutes a major break from male-centred theorizing to date in sociology and economics." "Preference theory is grounded on the substantial body of new research on women's work and fertility that has flourished within feminist scholarship. It identifies five major historical changes that collectively are producing a qualitatively new scenario for women in prosperous societies in the 21st century." "Throughout the analysis, the USA and Britain illustrate what the new scenario means for women, how it alters their preferences and work-lifestyles choices. Hakim also reviews research evidence on contemporary developments across Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the far East to develop a new theory that is genuinely international in perspective."--Jacket

Erotic capital : the power of attraction in the boardroom and the bedroom by Catherine Hakim( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2010, pioneering sociologist Catherine Hakim shocked the world with a provocative new theory: In addition to the three recognized personal assets (economic, cultural, and social capital), each individual has a fourth asset-erotic capital-that he or she can, and should, use to advance within society. In this bold and controversial book, Hakim explores the applications and significance of erotic capital, challenging the disapproval meted out to women and men who use sex appeal to get ahead in life. Social scientists have paid little serious attention to these modes of personal empowerment, despite overwhelming evidence of their importance. In Erotic Capital, Hakim marshals a trove of research to show that rather than degrading those who employ it, erotic capital represents a powerful and potentially equalizing tool-one that we scorn only to our own detriment"--

Research design : successful designs for social and economic research by Catherine Hakim( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Research Design provides a practical overview of the central issues involved in the design of social and economic research. Covering both theoretical and policy research, Hakim sets out the key features, strengths and limitations of eight main types of study, with illustrations from real-life research of the kinds of questions each can best be used to answer. In addition, this book offers a more general pragmatic discussion of strategies for choosing between one design and another, and how different types of study can be successfully combined in wider ranging research programmes." "This book will be a guide to research design for students, for professional social scientists and for those who commission and use social research."--Jacket
Key issues in women's work : female heterogeneity and the polarisation of women's employment by Catherine Hakim( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women's employment is one of the most widely-discussed and widely-misunderstood issues of modern society. Are women today oppressed, or do they have the best of both worlds? Do women have to go out to work to gain equality with men? Or do they already do more than their share of domestic work, caring work and voluntary work as well as unseen work in the informal economy? Do women seek career employment on the same terms as men, or are they content to be dependent wives or secondary earners taking jobs on a short-term basis? How important is job segregation in explaining the large pay gap between men and women? Have equal opportunities laws had real impact? Are women in Britain lagging behind or at the forefront of developments in Europe? This book addresses all the key issues currently debated in relation to women's work in the domestic sphere as well as paid employment, and comes to some unexpected conclusions
