Immigration and the transformation of Europe ( Book )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A new kind of historic transformation is underway in twenty-first-century Europe. Twentieth-century Europeans were no strangers to social, economic, and political change, but their major challenges focused mainly on the intra-European construction of stable, prosperous, capitalist democracies.Today, by contrast, one of the major challenges is flows across borders -- and particularly in-flows of non-European people. Immigration and minority integration consistently occupy the headlines. The issues which rival immigration -- unemployment, crime, terrorism -- are often presented by politicians as its negative secondary effects. Immigration is also intimately connected to the profound challenges of demographic change, economic growth, and welfare-state reform. Both academic observers and the European public are increasingly convinced that Europe's future will largely turn on how it admits and integrates non-Europeans. This book is a comprehensive stock-taking of the contemporary situation and its policy implications."--Dust jacket

From parents to children : the intergenerational transmission of advantage ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Does economic inequality in one generation lead to inequality of opportunity in the next? In From Parents to Children, an esteemed international group of scholars investigates this question using data from ten countries with differing levels of inequality. The book compares whether and how parents' resources transmit advantage to their children at different stages of development and sheds light on the structural differences among countries that may influence intergenerational mobility. How and why is economic mobility higher in some countries than in others? The contributors find that inequality in mobility-relevant skills emerges early in childhood in all of the countries studied. Bruce Bradbury and his coauthors focus on learning readiness among young children and show that as early as age five, large disparities in cognitive and other mobility-relevant skills develop between low- and high-income kids, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom. Such disparities may be mitigated by investments in early childhood education, as Christelle Dumas and Arnaud Lefranc demonstrate. They find that universal pre-school education in France lessens the negative effect of low parental SES and gives low-income children a greater shot at social mobility. Katherine Magnuson, Jane Waldfogel, and Elizabeth Washbrook find that income-based gaps in cognitive achievement in the United States and the United Kingdom widen as children reach adolescence. Robert Haveman and his coauthors show that the effect of parental income on test scores increases as children age; and in both the United States and Canada, having parents with a higher income betters the chances that a child will enroll in college. As economic inequality in the United States continues to rise, the national policy conversation will not only need to address the devastating effects of rising inequality in this generation but also the potential consequences of the decline in mobility from one generation to the next. Drawing on unparalleled international datasets, From Parents to Children provides an important first step. John Ermisch is professor of family demography at Oxford University. Markus Jäntti is professor of economics at the Swedish Institute for Social Research, Stockholm University. Timothy M. Smeeding is director of the Institute for Research on Poverty, University of Wisconsin-Madison."--Publisher

Persistence, privilege, and parenting : the comparative study of intergenerational mobility ( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Americans like to believe that theirs is the land of opportunity, but the hard facts are that children born into poor families in the United States tend to stay poor and children born into wealthy families generally stay rich. Other countries have shown more success at lessening the effects of inequality on mobility possibly by making public investments in education, health, and family well-being that offset the private advantages of the wealth. What can the United States learn from these other countries about how to provide children form disadvantaged backgrounds an equal chance in life? Making comparisons across ten countries, Persistence, Privilege, and Parenting brings together a team of eminent international scholars to examine why advantage and disadvantage persist across generations. The book sheds light on how the social and economic mobility of children differs within and across counties and the impact private family resources, public policies, and social institutions may have on mobility. In what ways do parents pass advantage or disadvantage on to their children? Persistence, Privilege, and Parenting is an expansive exploration of the relationship between parental socioeconomic status and background and the outcomes of their grown children. The authors also address the impact of education and parental financial assistance on mobility. Contributors Miles Corak, Lori Curtus, and Shelley Phipps look at how family economic background influences the outcomes of adult children in the United States and Canada. They find that, despite many cultural similarities between the two countries, Canada has three times the rate of intergenerational mobility as the United States possibly because Canada makes more public investments in its labor market, health care, and family programs. Jo Blanden and her colleagues explore a number of factors affecting how advantages is transmitted between parents and children in the United States and the United Kingdom, including education, occupation, marriage, and health. They find that despite the two nations having similar rates of intergenerational mobility adn social inequality, lack of educational opportunity plays a greater role in limiting U..S. mobility, while the U.K.'s deeply rooted social class structure makes it difficult for the disadvantaged to transcend their circumstances. Hande Waldfogel and Elizabeth Washbrook examine cognitive and behavioral school readiness across income groups and find that pres-school age children in both the UNited States and Britain show substantial income-related gaps in school readiness driven in part by poorly developed parenting skills among overburdened, low-income families. The authors suggest that the most programs int he United States, raising pre-school staff qualifications in Britain, and parenting programs in both countries
