Family in Singapore: Sociological Perspectives

Front Cover
Times Academic Press, 1998 - Political Science - 314 pages
Since its first publication in 1994, Family in Singapore: Sociological Perspectives has provided an important insight on the situation of the family in modern Singapore, through the 20th century, and the impact of social policy on the family. The revised and expanded second edition provides a current and detailed analysis of the issues covered in the first edition as well as incorporates new developments in the public and private spheres of family life in Singapore. New chapters analyse the concept of social capital represented by grandparents in Singapore, how values are transmitted across generations, and the resilience of father and mother roles. This second edition engages with the international scene when it discusses the main issues of family policy and family relations in Singapore and other countries.
