Ethnographies of Social Support, Hardback Book


Why do elderly choose to move away from their children so as to not receive their support?

Using a number of case studies, contributors explore social support as a tool of mutuality, or maintaining relatedness and sharing feelings, rather than preventing or patching up problems.

This book helps correct the dominant framework of deliberate action.
