Overview

In a cross-national project studying the role of education as an increasingly important determinant of mate selection, Blossfeld (Otto Friedrich U., Bamberg, Germany) and Timm (U. of Bremen) introduce a general partner search model. In asking "who marries whom?" in the US and European countries, social scientists present a dozen life-history studies exploring assortative mating patterns and social in/equities relating to educational level. These are complemented by a case study of educational intermarriage in Israel, and a comparative analysis of the country-specific findings. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
