520    "Despite concentrated research and important legislative 
       milestones on gender equality over the past quarter-
       century, gender-related disparities in science, technology,
       and math careers persist into the 21st century. This 
       persistence sustains a troubling state of gender inequity 
       in which women are not sharing in the salary and status 
       advantages attached to scientific and technical careers. 
       In this landmark volume, editors Watt and Eccles, both 
       well known for their research contributions in this area, 
       compile a rich source of longitudinal analysis that places
       the problem in context. Experts from different countries 
       in the fields of developmental and social psychology, 
       human development, biology, education, and sociology draw 
       on multi-wave longitudinal data on the gender-related 
       variables that influence occupational outcomes."--Jacket.
