Summary

At a time when families break up and employment is often short-term, society is increasingly forced to operate against a background of insecurity. Insecure Times looks at how this sense of risk and instability has affected the major institutions of social life.
With examples and research taken from a range of European and North American societies today, this innovative text on contemporary society discusses such major issues as:
* the causes of social and economic insecurity
* insecurity and modern capitalism
* the role of the state
* insecurity and housing
* contemporary family life.
