Eleven contributions from international researchers examine working time over the life cycle and nonstandard work arrangements in the U.S. and Canada. The papers were originally presented at a conference on working time held in Ottawa, Ontario in June of 1996. Topics include, for example, adults returning to school, moonlighting, self-employment for married females, the changing use of temporary workers, and early retirement.
