Family Life and Individual Welfare in Post-war Europe. Britain and Italy Compared
Title: Family Life and Individual Welfare in Post-war Europe. Britain and Italy Compared
Author: BERNINI, Stefania
Citation: Houndsmill, Macmillan-Palgrave, 2007
Throughout the postwar period, changes in individual behaviour and legal reforms have transformed traditional notions of family life throughout Western Europe. However, interpretations of what constituted a desirable family life varied, together with the type of social intervention adopted towards it. Taking Britain and Italy as comparative cases, the author explores the extent to which dominant notions of family life differed in postwar Britain and Italy and the implications this had on the development of family policy in these two countries.
