Kinder“ Zur Lebenssituation alleinstehender Mütter in der gegenwärtigen

Table of contents


Content: From an ethnological perspective, this book deals with the real life situation of single mothers in Mongolia. Based on the discourse theory, ruling moral and general moral concepts are analyzed. These theories are then used to analyse the historical image of single mothers from the beginning of the 20th century, continuing on to the socialist period until the political changes in the 1990's.
For this work a wide variety of available archival material and available literature was studied in detail and supplemented by selected reports of the lives of single mothers followed by an analysis of the gender-differentiated roles in their family environment.
The empirical data was won during repeated fieldwork over several months. The current picture of men that characterizes the public discourse since the change of system, is an additional view, complementing this work.
