This book is an in-depth, cutting-edge report on the intergenerational ambivalence perspective: an innovative framework for understanding parent-adult child relationships that has emerged from work in several disciplines such as sociology, psychology, history, and family therapy in the US and Europe over the past ten years. The theory of intergenerational ambivalence is a powerful perspective in that it synthesizes both the solidarity and conflict dimensions of intergenerational relations, but remains quite abstract when distilled to its core.

The book's first part offers a broad conceptual overview and an analysis of historical evidence of ambivalence in parent-child relations, part two looks at how ambivalence is measured in intergenerational relations, part three focuses on ambivalence when care is provided to dependent family members and part four examines intergenerational. Intergenerational ambivalence thus refers to ‘observable forms of intergenerational relations among adults’ that can be ‘interpreted as the expression of ambivalences and as efforts to manage and negotiate these fundamental ambivalences’ (Lüscher and Pillemer, ). This book thus contributes to theory-building as well as outlining research results and helping to develop measurement in interpersonal and intergenerational relations.
