Family and Housing. Recent Trends in France and Southern Europe, Oxford, The Bardwell Press, 2009

Edited by Catherine Bonvalet, Valérie Laflamme, Denise Arbonville
Foreword by Yves Grafmeyer
Translated by Zoé Andreyev

Oxford, The Bardwell Press, 2009

This important new comparative research study of housing and family is distinctive because it takes France and southern Europe as its focus.

France is conventionally compared with northern European societies because of similarities in economic and industrial development, the role of the state, and demographic characteristics. This ignores cultural and social similarities between France and the societies of southern Europe, united by shared Latin heritage, recent urbanisation, attachment to the rural world and values of family solidarity.

The authors of this groundbreaking study of family and housing patterns in France compared with Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Romania offer novel insights into key social and population changes of the last century.
