Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reports on international research on family policy and family development in Eastern and Western Europe, drawing on data collected during 1991-91, a period of unprecedented social and economic transformation in the region. Looks at how family policies towards families with small children were constructed in different countries, in particular policies regarding reconciliation of work and family, and examines gendered attitudes to family roles. Part I presents comparative results of the study, focusing on the two German states. Part II examines results from Sweden, Russia, Poland, and the Netherlands. No index.
