            Intergenerational Space brings together leading scholars to address pressing questions about the nature of contemporary generational divisions as well as the complex ways in which members of different generations can be involved in each other s lives. It explores how particular t...ypes of spaces and spatial arrangements, such as cities, neighbourhoods, intuitions and leisure sites, facilitate and limit intergenerational contact and encounters. It considers what processes and spaces influence the intergenerational negotiation and contestation of values, beliefs and social memory, producing patterns of both continuity and change. This book also explores if generational separation and segregation are in fact significant social problems across a range of contexts and, if so, how this can be improved. The cross-disciplinary chapters make original contributions to debates as well as advancing high profile discussion in the social sciences about encounters with social difference, community cohesion, segregation, political agency and social inequality. This book offers a unique contribution to existing literature by bringing together debates and drawing on global research and examples. It will be of interest across disciplines to students, academics and practitioners.
