Here is a comprehensive and hugely important treatment of the topic of gender and demographic behaviour. It covers a lot of ground, from the age at first intercourse, through union formation and dissolution, to subjects such as fertility, migration, and ageing. It also examines in detail excess male mortality and provides a comparison of gender-specific behaviour and its determinants. It reports new findings of empirical research, mostly based on data from a number of European countries, making good use of Family and Fertility surveys and other international databases.

From the reviews:
"This volume ... is a most welcome contribution to the research literature. ... This book could grace any sociologist's book shelf. It would strongly benefit demographers to be exposed to these fine-grained analyses ... . It is also useful to comparative international research. The sophistication of the analytical approaches ... could be useful in a senior demography course, or certainly in a graduate course." (Susan A, McDaniel, Canadian Studies in Population, Vol. 36 (1-2), Spring/Summer, 2009)
