9780415207706: The Myth of Generational Conflict: The Family and State in Ageing Societies (Studies in European Sociology)

The ageing of Western societies has provoked extensive sociological debate, surrounding both the role of the state and whether it can afford the cost of an ageing population, and the role of the family, especially women, in supporting older people.

In this important book, the authors examine how changes, such as cuts in welfare provision, migration, urbanization and individualisation influence intergenerational relations. The collection addresses theoretical and policy issues connecting age and generation with the family and social policy, and focuses both on cross-cultural comparison within societies and analysis based on a range of societies.

This edited collection brings together a range of leading researchers and theorists from across Europe to advance a sociological understanding of generational relations, in terms of the state and the family and how they are interlinked. It will be of interest to academics and researchers in sociology, social policy and ageing, and to policy makers concerned with the implications of demographic and policy changes.

About the Author:

Sara Arber is the President of The British Sociological Association, 1999-2001

Review:

"The authors have made significant conceptual and methodological contributions to global generational research...These conclusions have implications for public policy in the US, which in recent years has been engaged in verbal, especially political, gymnastics regarding governmental roles versus privatization for enhancing the social security system for current and future generations."
-E.A. McKinney, CHOICE, May 2001
"In this important book, Arber and Attias-Donfut have brought together a collection of articles designed to examine the generational conflict. Their presentation is fair and reasoned and different opinion are expressed.It is an important source of information on the troubling claim that the generations are in an antagonistic relationship to each other over social insurance today.."
-Social Development Issues, Vol. 23 No. 1, 2001
