by Joanne B. Ciulla (Times Business; $25): "Economist Juliet Schor shows how work has increased over the past 20 years as vacation time shrinks. The average employed person in America worked 163 hours more in 1987 than in 1969. Women average 305 more hours of work than in 1969. Free time fell 40% since 1973 from 26 hours a week to under 17 hours."
