Social transformation and the family in post-Communist Germany by Eva Kolinsky( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores one of the most interesting and uncharted developments of our era: the transformation of East German society after the unification of Germany in 1990. State socialism had guaranteed employment for men and women, wages were low, housing cheap, child-care plentiful and child-benefits generous. After its collapse, former certainties turned into unknown competition in the labour market, unemployment, income differentiation and in some cases poverty. Women, single mothers, the unskilled and blue collar workers lost the employment concessions or special status they had enjoyed before and faced unexpected risks of exclusion; others relished the opportunities of occupational mobility and increased income that also arose. In post-communist Germany, family duties and employment which were deemed compatible in the GDR, have begun to conflict, yet women have retained their employment motivation and their family orientation. Arising from a programme of research workshops funded by the Anglo-German Foundation and the ESRC, Social Transformation and the Family examines key areas of post-communist transformation in Germany with special reference to the place and future of the family. The first part of the book discusses family policy agendas, the second looks at income and employment change and the challenges faced by women, the young and older people in post-communist German society
Political thought and German reunification : the new German ideology?( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"German reunification occurred almost without warning or notice and at a very rapid pace. In many respects there was little economic, industrial, fiscal, intellectual or ideological preparation for this momentous step, which has far-reaching implications, not only for Germany itself, but for all the member states of the European Union, and the wider socio-economic geopolitical situation. German intellectuals have, in particular, struggled to adjust to the new circumstances. Ten years on from reunification intellectuals are still attempting to question and re-evaluate the 'idea' of a reunified Germany at the heart of a new Europe
The Economics of co-determination by David F Heathfield( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stereotypes in contemporary Anglo-German relations by Rainer Emig( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stereotypes, often dating back to the Second World War and beyond, continue to dominate Anglo-German relations. This is all the more worrying since a changing Europe requires realistic assessments of the nations involved and their partners. This collection of essays brings together views from a number of relevant disciplines, such as psychology, history, cultural theory, literature, pedagogy, but also business and management studies, to elucidate the origins, forms and possible strategies of dealing with stereotypes in the relationship between Britain and Germany. The contibutors assess their impacts on the personal sphere and that of communication, the media, business and politics. They demonstrate that, while stereotypes are a persistent force, they are only static to a certain degree. Living and dealing with them in an active and conscious manner could make them enabling rather than disabling in the assertion of identity in a changing world

Cities in transition : new challenges, new responsibilities by Bernhard Blanke( )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume explores a range of current problems faced by cities in Germany and England and reflects on constructive strategies for enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of twenty-first century urban environments. The chapters of the book are based on papers given at a symposium organized by the Universities of Bristol and Hanover in 1997 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of twinning between the cities of Hanover and Bristol."--BOOK JACKET
Adversity and challenge in life in the new Germany and in England( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fall of the Berlin Wall transformed life in East Germany, producing numerous challenges to successful adjustment. This book is one of the first in English to report German research findings on the effects of German reunification set against the broader context of economic and social change in England and Germany. It argues that, although Germany and Britain share the same capitalist, economic and western democratic political systems, the cultural ties between East and West Germany transcend these distinctions."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Risk in the modern age : social theory, science, and environmental decision-making( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental decision-making in recent decades has become increasingly dependent on scientific expertise. Grounded in universal principles of knowledge, these expert evaluations often depart from the assessments of ordinary members of the public. Whether the issue is nuclear power, genetic testing, food safety, or biodiversity, conservation lay people are increasingly charging experts with being ignorant of local contextual considerations. Scientists, as well as many policy-makers, in turn contend that the public is hopelessly irrational in gauging environmental risks. Highlighting both theoretical and empirical perspectives, this volume brings together a distinguished group of environmental sociologists who critique and extend current thinking on what it means to live in a 'risk society'."--Jacket
