Produktbeschreibung
The course of human lives in Western society is inescapably shaped by political, cultural, and economic factors. Changes in these spheres inevitably lead to changes in our conceptions of everything from childhood and adulthood to family structures and living arrangements. The nineteen articles collected in "The Life Course Reader" offer a range of both theoretical and empirical studies of changing conceptions of the life course. Drawing on data from North America and Europe, the "Reader" will be indispensable for anyone studying human development and the twenty-first century family.
Patchworkfamilien, komplizierte Bildungsverläufe, "Erwerbsbiografien", flexibler Übergang in den Ruhestand - heutige Lebensläufe haben mit jenen der Generationen zuvor nur noch wenig gemein. Hierin zeigt sich ein vielgestaltiger sozialer, politischer, wirtschaftlicher und kultureller Wandel in modernen Gesellschaften. Der vorliegende englischsprachige Reader richtet sein Augenmerk auf die wissenschaftliche Beschäftigung mit diesem sozialen und biografischen Wandel - die Lebenslaufforschung - und analysiert die Wechselwirkungen von Individuum und Gesellschaft. Die Herausgeber versammeln bedeutende theoretische und empirische Texte aus Europa und Nordamerika von Martin Kohli, Jutta Allmendinger, Glen Elder, Angela O'Rand und vielen anderen.
