"Despite the different points of view resulted from the contributors' different life expereinces, and dissimilar professional training, it is to the merit of Barbara Lobodzinsk to supply the readers with a fine and intelligent, skillfully structured volume. Her initial overview, together with her introductory notes to each national case-study, and her concluding remarks, are most helpful in understanding the factors influencing the curent changes inside and outside the family. To sum up. her book makes for useful reading for all those who are interested in the current situation of Central-Eastern European countries." - International Review of Sociology
