9781843763581: Solidarity Between the Sexes and the Generations: Transformations in Europe (Globalization and Welfare)

Knijn (social science, Utrecht University, The Netherlands) and Komter (social science, University College, The Netherlands) combine theoretical and empirical cross-national perspectives to examine how societal transformations in European welfare states affect patterns of solidarity between men and women and across generations. Contributors in sociology, family demography, economics, and social policy highlight discrepancies in various countries between assumptions made at the macro-level of social policy on family issues and the reality of men's and women's contributions at home. The book will appeal to researchers in social policy and gender studies as well as those developing social policy in European countries. Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author:

Edited by Trudie Knijn, Utrecht University and Aafke Komter, Professor of Social Science, University College, Utrecht, The Netherlands

Review:

`The strength of the book lies in the comprehensive coverage of the expanded Europe and its diverse welfare perspectives, taking gender and intergenerational solidarity as the core of the discourse. The volume includes theoretical, empirical and comparative material, which is written in an accessible and refreshingly jargon-free style. I consider it is eminently suitable for courses in social policy, gender studies and sociology.' -- Kate Davidson, Journal of Social Policy

Book Description Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book combines a theoretical and empirical cross-national perspective to examine how societal transformations in European welfare states affect patterns of solidarity between men and women, and across generations. The authors research has highlighted substantial discrepancies in various countries between the assumptions made at the macro-level of social policy on family issues and the reality of women s and men s contributions at home. In countries where social policy relies on family solidarity as the main source of support, this may result in growing social inequality. Finally, the chapters reveal the crucial role of women in the transformation of family life and welfare state policy. These conclusions could have important ramifications for European welfare policy. The cross-national perspective allows for a detailed understanding of the similarities and differences between the various European countries and their policies. Solidarity Between the Sexes and the Generations will appeal to scholars and researchers of social policy, sociology and welfare as well as women and gender studies. Because of its comparative perspective the book is also of interest to those involved in developing social policy in European countries. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9781843763581
