Summary "Competing Devotions focuses on broader social and cultural forces that create women's identities and shape their understanding of what makes life worth living." "Mary Blair-Loy examines the career paths of women financial executives who have tried various approaches to balancing career and family. These women executives, who face great resistance but are aided by new ideological and material resources that come with historical change, may eventually redefine both the nuclear family and the capitalist firm in ways that reduce work-family conflict."--Jacket.
