Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book on Family and Social Change in Socialist and Post-Socialist Societies contains the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgements, the list of Figures, a list of Tables and a list of Contributors. The book addresses the social transformations of eight transitional societies in recent decades (Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, China, and Vietnam). Each chapter discusses a different society and reveals the struggles within the reconstruction of the intimate and public spheres during the post- Cold War period. The book addresses the ambiguous relationship between familism and individualisation seen through change and continuity in demographic behavior, family values, family solidarity, gender relations, state policy and marketisation.

Keywords: familism; gender relations; individualisation; marketisation; post- Cold War period; transitional societies
