About this item

Sharing Lives looks at the most important human relationships, which last the longest time of our lives: those between adult children and their parents. Offering an excellent new reference point for studies in the sociology of family, the book focuses on the reasons and results of lifelong intergenerational solidarity by looking at individuals, families and societies.
This monograph combines theoretical reasoning with empirical research based on the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). The book focuses on the following areas:

  • Adult family generations, from young adulthood to the end of life – and even beyond
  • Contact, conflict, coresidence, money, time, inheritance
  • Consequences of lifelong solidarity
  • Family generations and the relationship of family and welfare state
  • Connections between family cohesion and social inequality

Sharing Lives offers reliable findings on the basis of state-of-the-art methods and best available data, and presents these findings in an accessible manner. This book will appeal to researchers, policy makers and graduate students in the area of sociology, political science, psychology and economics.
