Globalization creates more flexible labor markets; this produces economic uncertainty among individuals who suffer delays in gaining employment which creates delays in first marriage, birth of first children, and so forth.
An impressive array of contributors examine how people in modern societies deal with the effects of globalization, creating a volume which will appeal to a range of researchers with an interest in sociology, economics, and globalization.
