Based on a long-term study of the policies of seven European nations towards lone mothers, Lone Mothers in European Welfare Regimes reveals the contrasting attitudes in Europe today towards lone motherhood. The contributors examine the specific categorisation and treatment of lone mothers as well as the problems created, in terms of government policy, by the obvious conflict in the parent-worker role. Other topics, such as possible marginalisation and the queston of whether the problems that face lone mothers are unique or simply a by-product of wider social problems, are also discussed.
