9780847698622: Ladies on the Lot: Women, Car Sales, and the Pursuit of the American Dream
Críticas:

Lawson's Ladies on the Lot is an example of the finest work being done in qualitative social science today. Her interviews and fieldwork succeed in making these women come alive as they tell us their stories and draw us into their lives of struggles and dreams. This is a wonderful book to teach with, for it shows us how culture, class, and gender are played out in the lives of ordinary people and what it costs women to pursue their dreams of making it in America today. This study is a rare and insightful look at many of the changes that came upon American women and men in the decade 1988 to 1999! -- E. Doyle McCarthy, Fordham University Should be of interest to students of gender and work, as well as anyone who has experienced the arduous task of buying a new car. Sociological Abstracts Helene Lawson has provided a richly detailed, fascinating look at women who work in car sales. She astutely reveals an interesting new world to the reader. This work makes a major contribution to the study of women in non-traditional occupations. Gender & Society Contributing to the growing literature on how women cross the gender divide and struggle for survival in traditional male trades, this occupational study offers insights into the ordeals women sales agents encounter on the automobile lots across America. Lawson's typologies are rich and descriptive, probing many different facets of women's car sales careers, including navigating the selling floor, relating with colleagues and customers, and negotiating the contract. Anyone who has ever experienced the onerous task of purchasing a car will be enlightened by this behind-the-scenes account of the process. Students of gender and work and occupations will find it a delightful read. -- Patricia A. Adler, University of Colorado

Reseña del editor:

In this unique and lively ethnography of women who sell cars, sociologist Helene M. Lawson and the Oladies on the lotO take readers behind the scenes of one of the last bastions of a predominantly male workplace: the car dealership. Linking the womenOs own stories within the broader framework of gender and occupation, Lawson presents an engaging and important case study on the impact of gender differences and behavior in the workplace. In doing so, Ladies on the Lot makes an original contribution to the field and will be of interest for a wide variety of courses, including gender and occupations, the sociology of work, the sociology of women, and various courses in womenOs studies and qualitative methods.
