Grandparenting Practices Around the World presents an in-depth and up-to-date analysis of the increasing numbers of grandparents worldwide who co-exist and interact for longer periods of time with their grandchildren. The book contains analyses of topics that have so far received relatively little attention, such as transnational grandparenting and gender differences in grandparenting practices. It is the first collection to bring together a wide variety of theory-driven research on grandparenting, including chapters on Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australia. Building on the success of Contemporary Grandparenting, edited by Virpi Timonen and Sarah Arber, this book further deepens our understanding of how social structures continue to shape grandparenting across a wide range of cultural and economic contexts.
