Intergenerational relationships in the United States and Yugoslavia are contrasted in terms of two opposing models: an American one stressing self-realization, independence, and individualism; and a Yugoslav one characterized by kinship corporacy, interdependence, and familial symbiosis and reciprocity. Differences in the role of the aged in these two societies are explained in terms of underlying systems of values and basic assumptions as reflected in family structure and process.
