Childlessness in Europe: Contexts, Causes, and Consequences ed. by Michaela Kreyenfeld, Dirk Konietzka (review)

Childlessness in Europe: Contexts, Causes, and Consequences ed. by Michaela Kreyenfeld, Dirk... Book reviews Kenfeeyr LD Michaela, Keintoz Ka Dirk (eds.), 2017, Childlessness in Europe: Contexts, Causes, and Consequences, Dordrecht, Springer, Demographic Research Monograph, XI-370 p. This open access book, edited by Michaela Kreyenfeld (Hertie School of Governance, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research) and Dirk Konietzka (University of Technology, Braunschweig), provides a comprehensive overview of childlessness in Europe. Against the background of (re)increasing levels of childlessness in many European countries, the editors bring together demographers and sociologists who examine its contexts, causes and consequences. The majority of articles in the book are country-specic a fi nalyses, covering the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands. In addition, an article on childlessness in the United States puts European countries in perspective. Unfortunately, the book does not include any studies on Southern, Central or Eastern European countries. Its main strength is its comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach, which consists in bringing together (1) quantitative demographic analysis of the socio- economic determinants of childlessness in European countries, (2) qualitative studies on fertility ideals and life course plans, (3) a descriptive overview of assisted reproductive technologies, and (4) a discussion of the consequences of childlessness in terms of well-being, old-age income and intergenerational http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Population, English edition Institut national d'études démographiques
