Distant love : personal life in the global age by Ulrich Beck( Book )

50 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their new book, Ulrich Beck and Elisabeth Beck-Gernsheim investigate all types of long-distance relationships, marriages and families that stretch across countries, continents and cultures. These long-distance relationships comprise so many different forms of what they call 'world families', by which they mean love and intimate relationships between individuals living in, or coming from, different countries or continents. In all their various forms these world families share one feature in common: they are the focal point in which different aspects of the globalized world become embodied in the personal lives of individuals. Whether they like it or not, lovers and relatives in these families find themselves confronting the world in the inner space of their own lives. The conflicts between the developed and developing worlds come to the surface in world families - they acquire faces and names, creating confusion, surprise, anger, joy, pleasure and pain at the heart of everyday life. -- Provided by publisher

Reinventing the family : in search of new lifestyles by Elisabeth Beck-Gernsheim( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The traditional image of the family as a life-long unit is fading fast. There are fewer marriages, more divorces, and ever more children born to unmarried or single parents. The forms of our private life are changing rapidly, and people are embarking on new lifestyles based on cohabitation, separation and same-sex partnerships. In this lively and accessible new book, Elisabeth Beck-Gernsheim looks at the future of our lives after the family. Examining the breakdown of the conventional family unit, she explores the new choices that are open to individuals, and analyses our anxiety over the ensuing loss of stability."--Jacket
