  • The Future of Motherhood in Western Societiesby Gijs Beets; Joop Schippers; Egbert R. Velde

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    Most people value to have children still highly. But what is the optimal moment to have the first? The decision on having children or not and if yes on the timing of the first is one of the most difficult ones to make, also because it more or less coincides with various other heavy decisions on shaping the life course (like on union formation, labour... more...

  • Population Mattersby Nancy Birdsall; Allen C. Kelley; Steven Sinding

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 59.99
