Divided Denmark: A Convoy in Disintegration

  • Jacques Blum
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 161)


As a cultural sociologist it is not possible to concern oneself with the conditions of childhood without setting them in a specific cultural social framework. It is not unimportant whether a child grows up in Greece, Germany, or France, or in the Danish welfare state. This chapter therefore concerns itself with salient features of the current situation in Danish society — a society that seems to be on the way to a dramatic dissolution into different lifestyles and in which the collapse of norms, especially in the 1960s, has had decisive consequences for the conditions of childhood.
