George Miller talks to Sten-Åke Stenberg in the podcast The hedgehog & the fox, about the monograph Born in 1953: The story about a post-war Swedish cohort.
‘Sweden was a country in which everything seemed to be changing for the better, a country on its way to becoming modern.’ (Sten-Åke Stenberg)
“This is the first sociological description of a cohort in a Nordic setting, which also discusses perspectives on the individual person registration systems which is rather unique in a Nordic context.” (Merete Osler, Center for Clinical
Research and Prevention, Denmark)
“This book is well written and easy-to read, which makes it accessible for a wider audience. /…/ It is good for the collective memory that these experiences will be saved.” (Martin Diewald, Professor of Social Structure, Bielefeldt University, Germany)
