... comparative family policies are a rather new field of research ... the book can be regarded as a first step that outlines many relevant perspectives for future research and as an invitation to continue towards deeper in-depth analyses. Osterreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften
Family Policy Matters is impressive in its scope and analysis of family policy processes in EU member states and candidate countries. The book provides valuable insights into public perceptions of family policy across Europe, and challenges received wisdom about the impact of policy on families' daily lives and the decisions they take about living arrangements. It is likely to be an important and informative source for comparative family policy analysis for many years to come. Susan McRae, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research & Graduate Studies), Oxford Brookes University
Governments across Europe are facing new needs and demands as a consequence of increased diversity of family forms and ways of living, working and caring. This excellent new book provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date account of these issues in the wider European context. It will provide an invaluable resource for comparative family policy analysis. Jane Millar, Department of Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath
... valuable reading for anyone interested not only in changing family dynamics, but also the impact this has on government policy. Family Matters
