Values and Identities in Europe : Evidence from the European Social Survey, Hardback Book

Values and Identities in Europe : Evidence from the European Social Survey Hardback

Edited by Michael J. (Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland) Breen

Part of the Routledge Advances in Sociology series


Contrary to what is suggested in media and popular discourses, Europe is neither a monolithic entity nor simply a collection of nation states.

It is, rather, a union of millions of individuals who differ from one another in a variety of ways while also sharing many characteristics associated with their ethnic, social, political, economic, religious or national characteristics. This book explores differences and similarities that exist in attitudes, beliefs and opinions on a range of issues across Europe.

Drawing on the extensive data of the European Social Survey, it presents insightful analyses of social attitudes, organised around the themes of religious identity, political identity, family identity and social identity, together with a section on methodological issues.

A collection of rigorously analysed studies on national, comparative and pan-European levels, Values and Identities in Europe offers insight into the heart and soul of Europe at a time of unprecedented change.

As such, it will appeal to scholars across the social sciences with interests in social attitudes, social change in Europe, demographics and survey methods.
