Work Life Balance. This survey analyses the political context, the legislative frameworks and the policy developments in an area that is now widely termed 'work-life balance' in both the United Kingdom and Germany. It also looks at the theoretical notions of time in relation to work and family life and gives examples of research in the public, private and voluntary sector. "Work-Life Balance: Towards an Agenda for Policy Learning Between Britain and Germany" by Lore Arthur is published by the Anglo-German Foundation.
