The wrenching decision facing successful women choosing between demanding careers and intensive family lives has been the subject of many articles and books, most of which propose strategies for resolving the dilemma. Competing Devotions focuses on broader social and cultural forces that create women's identities and shape their understanding of what makes life worth living. "This is both an important scholarly contribution and a book that will help readers think differently about their lives. It should be required reading for professional women who aspire to maintain multidimensional lives." --Michhle Lamont, author of The Dignity of Working Men: Morality and the Boundaries of Race, Class, and Immigration "Blair-Loy's comparison of the two groups [of work-committed and family-committed] women is an imaginative and beautifully constructed study that bristles with insight ... Rather than serving up the standard menu of neat public policy fixes to achieve work-family 'balance, ' Competing Devotions offers a compelling explanation as to why even such long overdue reforms as paid family leave legislation and the proliferation of 'family friendly' corporate benefits are not likely to do much to resolve the work-family conundrum without a far more fundamental set of social changes." --Ruth Milkman, Women's Review of Books

Mary Blair-Loy is Associate Professor of Sociology, University of California, San Diego.
