In recent decades, the North American public has pursued an inspirational vision of successful aging-striving through medical technique and individual effort to eradicate the declines, vulnerabilities, and dependencies previously commonly associated with old age. On the face of it, this bold new vision of successful, healthy, and active aging is highly appealing. But it also rests on a deep cultural discomfort with aging and being old.

The chapters in this collection are based on qualitative fieldwork studies and collectively offer the reader a perspective on women, work, and gender relations that is at once multidisciplinary and feminist. Women's work in the household, agriculture, industry, and in the so-called informal sector is explored with a concern for the ways in which gender, class, and ethnicity are constructed by the larger socioeconomic structures in which women live. By taking concrete analyses of women's lives as their point of departure, the contributors to this volume strive to bridge the gap between socio-economic structure of the society and the actual circumstances in which women find themselves. In this way, readers and scholars alike are better able to untangle the complex dynamics of gender relations and to develop strategies for social change.
Professional development is an issue of interest to all criminal justice faculty, from the newest Assistant Professor to the most senior Full Professor. The annual Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences conference has a number of panels and workshops that deal with the wide variety of issues that criminal justice faculty deal with as they move though their career. These panels are well-attended, attesting to the interest that faculty have in this topic.
Given the importance of staying apprised of changes in the discipline, from hiring expectations to tenure and promotion requirements, the fact that academic study of criminal justice has changed a great deal in the past decade, and that more is now expected of graduate students, pre-tenure faculty, and even senior faculty, this book is an attempt to address some of the most important topics that those engaged in the academic study of criminal justice are faced with as they move through their career. Each chapter is written by a well-regarded academic with experience in the area upon which they are writing. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Criminal Justice Education.
