Description : What does motherhood mean today? Drawing on interviews with new mothers and intergenerational chains of women in the same family, this exciting and timely book documents the transition to motherhood over generations and time. Exploring, amongst other things, the trend to later motherhood and the experience of teenage pregnancy, a compelling picture emerges. Becoming a mother is not only a profound moment of identity change but also a site of socio-economic difference that shapes women's lives.

Description : This collection reviews national policies that critically influence economic performance in developing countries. It describes principles that shape good economic policy and illustrates them with case studies. In an overview that draws together insights from the essays, the volume editor explains why poor countries need sound government policies to offset unfavorable conditions, including scant natural resources, adverse problems that occur with monetary and exchange rate policies and financial sector reform. The basic rules for monetary policy in an open economy are developed along with the different ways in which financial reform and financial repression affect an economy. Practical ways to deal with foreign exchange markets are described. They include such arrangements as multiple exchange rates for commercial transactions and dual rates that separate commercial and financial transactions. Also examined are the ways in which trade liberalization and trade restrictions impede economic development. Advice is given on developing a uniform structure that balances the administration of taxes with the efficiency of a tax structure. The book examines the relationship between budget deficits and money creation and suggests management strategies for developing sound economic policy that include advice on inflation control, international trade, import restrictions, income tax rates, and price and wage controls. Published for the World Bank by Oxford University Press.

Description : This volume is the firstborn of the Annals of Cultural Psychology a yearly edited book series in the field of Cultural Psychology. It came into being as there is a need for reflection on “where and what” the discipline needs to further develop, in such a way, the current frontiers and to foster the elaboration of new fruitful ideas. The topic chosen for the first volume is perhaps the most fundamental of all motherhood. We are all here because at some unspecifiable time in the past, different women labored hard to bring each of us into this World. These women were not thinking of culture, but were just giving birth. Yet by their reproductive success—and years of worry about our growing up—we are now, thankfully to them, in a position to discuss the general notion of motherhood from the angle of cultural psychology. Each person who is born needs a mother—first the real one, and then possibly a myriad of symbolic ones—from “my mother” to “mother superior” to “my motherland”. Thus, it is not by coincidence if the first volume of the series is about motherhood. We the editors feel it is the topic that links our existence with one of the universals of human survival as a species. In very general terms what this book aims to do is to question the ontology of Motherhood in favor of an ontogenetic approach to Life’s Course, where having a child represents a big transition in a woman’s trajectory and where becoming (or not becoming) mother is heuristically more interesting than being a mother. We here present a reticulated work that digs into a cultural phenomenon giving to the readers the clear idea of making motherhood (and not taking for granted motherhood). By looking at absences, shadows and ruptures rather than the normativeness of motherhood, cultural psychology can provide a theoretical model in explaining the cultural multifaceted nature of human activity.

Description : As family and work demands become more complex, who is left holding the baby? Tina Miller explores men's experiences of fatherhood and provides unique insights into paternal caring, changing masculinities and men's relations to paid work. She focuses on the narratives of a group of men as they first anticipate and then experience fatherhood for the first time. Her original, longitudinal research contributes to contemporary theories of gender against a backdrop of societal and policy change. The men's journeys into fatherhood are both similar and varied, and they illuminate just how deeply gender permeates individual lives, everyday practices and societal assumptions around caring for young children. This book acts as a companion to Making Sense of Motherhood (Cambridge University Press, 2005) and, together, these innovative studies reveal how gendered practices around caring become enacted.
