In the last half-century, radical changes have rippled through the workplace and the home from Boston to Bombay. In the face of rapid globalization, these changes affect us all, and we can no longer confine ourselves to addressing working and social condtions 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, Forgotten Families is the first truly global acount of how the changing conditions of work threaten children, women and men, and
the infirm. It addresses problems faced by working families in industrialized and developing countries alike, touching on issues of child health and development, barrier to parents getting and keeping jobs, problems families confront daily and in times of crisis, and the roles of growing
inequalities. Rich in individual stories and deeply human, Heymann's book proposes innovative and imaginative ideas for solving theproblems of the truly belabored together as a global community.
