Nigel Barley se l'était juré : cette fois on ne l'y reprendrait plus. Son most advantageous séjour chez les Dowayos du Cameroun l'avait lessivé (Un anthropologue en déroute). remodelé en banquier, en infirmier, en chauffeur, il avait fini par comprendre que le sujet d'étude, c'était lui. Et pourtant, lorsqu'il apprend que ces braves montagnards vont reprendre une très ancienne cérémonie de circoncision, il repart aussitôt. Préparé au pire, cette fois, avec ses provisions de christmas pudding et de cheddar. Ce qui va lui arriver dépassera bien sûr tout ce qu'il avait pu imaginer, mais au moins rapportera-t-il de ce voyage un récit d'une extraordinaire cocasserie, comme tous les livres du plus drôle des conservateurs du British Museum.

The analysis here has revealed that the EU 15 countries are converging in terms of living standards and employment conditions and that the situation has improved in all countries for the most of the reported indicators. With the enlargement to include ten new member states, the situation becomes more diverse. All new member states have a lower standard of living than the EU 15 average; in both objectively and subjectively defined terms. However, the analysis shows that empirically, it makes more sense to move away from the old and new member states distinction and describe the social situation in the enlarged EU by three emerging country clusters.
Although social support was not significant among women when all the variables were controlled for, generally for men any form of social support is better than none or poor support. Previous research has shown that the availability of social support, can be a valuable “resistance resource” in the event of life changes, even if not called upon, simply knowing that the resources of other people are available increases an individual’s strength and tension resolving ability (Antonovosky, 1974). Promoting Well-Being The findings from this research have important implications for how we understand, measure, and promote well-being.
Luxembourg is, in this respect, an outlier because of its high standard of living, low unemployment rates and good health and working conditions. Nonetheless, Luxembourg is much more strongly related to the first country cluster than to the remaining ones. The second group comprises the Mediterranean countries Greece, Malta, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus. This intermediary group contains the most well-off accession countries and the old member with a lower living standard. The third group consists of new member states that were former post-communist countries (except Slovenia).
