The Work-Family Interface in Global Context.  Karen Korabik (University of Guelph, Canada), Zeynep Aycan (Koç University, Turkey), and Roya Ayman (Illinois Institute of Technology) are its editors.  Chapters were written by a global team of 14 researchers that represent universities in the United States, Canada, Turkey, Indonesia, Australia, Israel, Taiwan, India, Spain and China. 


Based on a sweeping, 10-country study, the book comprises the most comprehensive and rigorous cross-cultural study of the work-family interface to date. Just as work-family conflict is associated with negative consequences for workers, organizations, and societies, so too can the work and family domains interact positively to enhance or enrich one another. Drawing on qualitative, quantitative, and policy-based data, chapters in this collection explore the influence of culture on the work-family interface in order to help researchers and managers understand the applicability of work-family models in a variety of contexts and further conceptualize work-family interactions through the development of a more universal knowledge.
