In the chapters of this book the relatively dry descriptions of the Timescapes study in the introduction come to life through the experiences of the participants as they are described, analysed, explained and compared by the researchers who have followed their lives for a space of time. The intersection of biographical, historical and generational timescapes, a major interest of the research, leapt from the pages carried on the words of children, sisters and brothers, friends, mothers and fathers, and grandparents and grandchildren, demonstrating through their narratives the use and value of qualitative longitudinal research for understanding these temporal processes.
