Aiding and Aging: The Coming Crisis in Support for the Elderly by Kin and State

By John Mogey | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book was made possible by the U.S.-Hungarian Program in the Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences of the International Research and Exchanges Board, Princeton, New Jersey. Through their grants, the meetings of American and Hungarian researchers occurred in both the United States and in Hungary. Arizona State University, Department of Sociology, and Purdue University, Family Research Institute, gave freely of computer time and of office services. The report of our cooperative project ( Kinship and Aging, edited by Peter Somlai. Budapest: MTA Szociologiai Kutato Intezete. 1988. 322 pp.) was discussed at a conference in 1988.

This conference, organized by Laszlo Cseh-Szombathy as an International Seminar in Family Research for the International Sociological Association, brought some fifty colleagues to the Balaton-Zamardi conference center. We thank the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Hungarian Central Statistical Office, the Hungarian Scientific Society for Family and Women' Welfare, and the MTA-Soros Foundation for their assistance to this effort. The papers presented during this meeting extended the thrust of the original project to other countries and other standpoints. They enrich this book.

In editing a book about kinship, some nepotism may be in order. So to Honor Mogey Fellows and to Kathleen Cullen Mogey, the editor gives thanks for help in the interpretation of social work practice in aging.

We give thanks for these supports, administrative, financial, and intellectual, and present our materials to you in the hope that you will want to continue the dialogue.
