This volume examines the importance of time and place, as applied to aging families. In the first section, chapters focus on the temporal dimension of intergenerational relations using frameworks from human development, sociology, social history, and social psychology. The second section focuses on the social ecology of intergenerational relations in terms of the national contexts within which families are living. The contributors demonstrate how the life course perspective has enhanced our understanding of intergenerational relations. Their studies reveal the social, cultural, historical, and institutional forces that orient older and younger family members toward each other in both structured and adaptive ways. Book jacket.
