Summary Strategies of Care surveys the transformations of elderly care policies and practices since the early 1990's, by comparing two extremely different systems: Italy, a familialistic model without relevant policy changes; and the Netherlands, a formal care model under restructuring. The book shows that, while the Dutch system represents a case of institutional and social resistance to welfare restructuring, the Italian system has shifted to a mixed family- and market-based model. It is argued that these trajectories need to be understood from a micro-to-macro perspective, considering the choices and strategies of the actors as influenced by the institutional framework, but also as possible forces of social change. --Book Jacket.
