About this title:

Synopsis: "Family Policy Paradoxes" examines the political regulation of the family in Sweden between 1930 and today. It draws attention to the political attempts to create a 'modern family', and the aspiration to regulate the family and install gender equality. It thereby sheds light on ongoing policy processes within Europe and how these can be understood in the light of a particular political experience. The book is valuable for researchers, lecturers, undergraduate and graduate students who study gender, gender equality and welfare state development in Gender Studies, Sociology, Social and Public Policy, Social Work, Politics and Social/Contemporary History.

Review: By opening up the complexities and contradictions of Swedish family policy, this book offers a thought-provoking and historically informed analysis of the significance of gender equality ideals in political struggles to regulate family life and their combined effects on gender relations in the home and the workplace. Janet Fink, Senior Lecturer in Social Policy, The Open University

This important book provides a unique insight in the 'path dependent'evolution of Swedish family and gender equality policy from the 1930s to 2010. The critical analysis of the tensions, paradoxes and visions in the Swedish family model raises more general questions about policy learning across Europe and about family policies as potential vehicles for prosperity and sustainable growth. Professor Birte Siim, Department of Culture and Global Studies, University of Aalborg, Denmark

In Family Policy Paradoxes, Asa Lundqvist offers a rich, multifaceted analysis of Sweden's grand family policy experiment, highlighting visions, drivers and actors of social democratic family policies from the 1930s into the 2000s. Arnlaug Leira, Professor of Sociology, University of Oslo
