This book investigates how educational expansion, the trend towards the service sector, and German reunification have affected East and West German women’s life courses and family lives. It focuses on educational enrollment, educational attainment level, labor force participation, career resources, social origin, and educational match among partners. Gwendolin Josephine Blossfeld discusses the changes between historical periods and examines their consequences on maternity and childbearing as well as partnership formation and dissolution processes.
