This definitive study on women is now updated for the 90s. Sociologists Pat and Hugh Armstrong "hoped that enough would change in the nature and conditions of women's work that an entirely new book would be necessary, and [they] could abandon the old framework on the division of labour by sex. But [their] hopes have not been realized and a new edition not only seems useful, but overdue." The Double Ghetto surveys the work women do at home and on the job to analyze why work in this country is still segregated by sex. In the third edition, the authors devote new space to postmodernist theory and include new material on the differences between women emphasizing race, but including region and age. More attention is also given to the "casualization" of labour due to the dramatic expansion of part-time work. In easy-to-read language, The Double Ghetto explores a vital part of the socially structured life to Canadian women using the most up-to-date (1993) statistics and scholarly research available.
