Family is a fruitful object with which to study how social structures, changes and events are interrelated with people's personal lives. In this book, this relatedness of personal and public becomes apparent on multiple levels. It becomes evident how politics, public policies, production structures, labour markets and their changes create the frame within which women, men and children in families live their lives, as well as how personal choices influence these structures. The articles of this book comprise a valuable contribution to the discussions concerning the changing roles of women, men and children, as well as different transitions within the framework of generations, gender roles and work-life balance. In addition, they entail interesting data and methodological innovations. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in social sciences, education sciences and gender studies. Politicians, professionals and administrators interested in family and gender issues may find this book a valuable source of information.
