"A sophisticated and comprehensive treatment of comparable worth. It brings us up to date on the political debate, the technical issues, and the strategies for pay equity. [This] will be a major tool for those who sek to make women first class members of the workforce and the society."
"Clearly anyone who expects to deal with comparable worth issues can benefit from the lucid and scholarly essays...a reference library for those who need more detail on some aspect of the issue."
"...far superior in content and depth of analysis to any previous work. Highly recommended."
