Overview

The social care of children and the elderly are compared in five countries—Finland, Germany, Japan, the UK, and the US—in this thoughtful and rigorous study by academics in social policy, political science, and social work in the five countries under consideration. The theoretical approach derives from feminist theories on care as well as the methods of comparative social research. The approaches to care in each country are examined in terms of history, economics, and culture, with a concluding essay on the patterns that underlie the countries' different approaches.
