This important book offers valuable insights into the way in which social policies and welfare state arrangements interact with family and gender models. It presents the most up-to-date research in the field, based on a variety of national and comparative sources and using different theoretical and methodological approaches.

The authors address different forms of support (care, financial, emotional) and employ a bi-directional perspective, by exploring both giving and receiving across generations. Understanding how generations interact in families helps to reformulate the way issues of intergenerational equity are discussed, with reference to the societal level, in terms of pensions, health reforms and labour market changes.Chiara Saraceno presents contemporary research based on a variety of national and comparative sources using different theoretical and methodological approaches.The book covers a wide number of European countries as well as migrant groups in which the book will greatly appeal to graduate students interested in sociology, social policy and social psychology.

Researchers and policy makers in the fields of demography and sociology will also find the book an invaluable resource.
