"This is the first historical and sociological examination of bastardy ... during a four hundred year span ... the authors find: (1) distinct temporal and regional patterns in illegitimacy, as regular as those of fertility and mortality, and they suggest that fluctuations reflect changes in the efficacy of marriage; (2) a rise in the proportion of illegitimate births interrupted by two interludes of decline; (3) little impact of urbanization and industrialization on bastardy rates in Western Europe."

A fresh map of life : the emergence of the third age by Peter Laslett( Book )

29 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Autore è molto critico circa le stime di alcuni per cui <<l'accresciuta longevità comporterà una più forte proporzione di malati cronici e di invalidi>>, poiché sono migliorate le condizioni di invecchiamento della popolazione. È tuttavia vero, afferma Laslett, che, tra tutti i problemi, sia necessario concentrare l'attenzione su quelli legati alla previdenza e alla sanità. Quest'ultima presenta, oltre agli aspetti economici, anche risvolti etici e sociali, che potrebbero rivelarsi, specialmente nel lungo periodo, molto importanti. <<Una prima serie di questioni riguarda le implicazioni che l'aumento della durata della vita ha per l'individuo e i diritti che si devono riconoscere all'anziano riguardo agli interventi medici da cui tale aumento può in gran parte dipendere>>. Per tali ragioni, l'Autore esamina i diversi aspetti dell'invecchiamento e le molte angolature da cui si può osservare (a popolazione anziana in relazione ai mutamenti sociali e al nuovo ruolo della famiglia, la quale non può più fornire le garanzie di un tempo (ad esempio nel caso di ritiro dal lavoro). Il testo, che si legge facilmente, è ricco di riferimenti storici e di dati informativi; affronta tra passato e presente l'evoluzione della condizione dell'anziano, non trascurando neppure le descrizioni ostili e degradanti proprie della cultura degli ultimi anni punitiva verso l'anziano e l'invecchiamento in generale. L'Autore sostiene e dimostra che, all'aumento della popolazione anziana, non corrisponde sempre un analogo incremento della dipendenza da altri, della perdita delle capacità intellettive, dell'estromissione dalla vita familiare e sociale. Il problema si porrà piuttosto per una parte dei casi che rientrano nella quarta età. Qual è il giusto limite delle risorse che devono essere rivolte alla cura e al mantenimento di coloro che sono completamente inabili? Come si può stabilire un rapporto di equità tra generazione attuale e quelle future...(Pro.Soc.)

Aging in the past : demography, society, and old age( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical demography has been preoccupied for the most part with fertility and mortality. Lacking so far is a conjunction of the history of age and the old, that is to say, how we have become old, with its historical demography, why we have become old. This is addressed in this volume, with the addition of some elements of comparative analysis. The significant contrast is between the condition of developed societies when they were younger and the condition of the developing nations of today
