OPEN ACCESS Research Handbook on the Sociology of the Family

Edited by Norbert F. Schneider, Federal Institute for Population Research, Wiesbaden and Michaela Kreyenfeld, Hertie School, Berlin, Germany

‘The Research Handbook brings together contributions from leading international experts within the field of the sociology of the family, drawing on disciplinary backgrounds in theoretical and empirical sociology, demography, economics, political science and wider social sciences. By providing a comprehensive overview of the key issues and debates within contemporary European family sociology, ranging from the gendered division of work within families, intimate and intergenerational relationships, through to the role of family policies and different welfare regimes, it will be critical reading for all scholars interested in how families are coping and how they are evolving. The list of contributors reads like a “who’s who” and the book will rightly gain a place on the bookshelves of family researchers, practitioners and policy makers across the globe.’
