About this book

This book provides insights into the theoretical framework of 'tensions' related to care for children and the elderly. It analyzes if, and under what conditions, welfare state reforms have contributed to strengthening existing tensions, creating new tensions, or relaxing such tensions.

Reviews

'It is very difficult to provide a convincing account of a field that is changing rapidly. This book achieves that task with a narrative that is both empirically wide-ranging and theoretically coherent. The Europe-wide scope of the book is particularly valuable as is its focus on the nature and impact of change and reform in policies and people's everyday lives. The reader will be invaluably instructed and impressed by the collection.'

- Professor Mary Daly, Queen's University Belfast, Ireland
