In , the authors have studied stability of certain causal properties of space-times in general relativity. As a continuation of this work, in the present paper, we review and discuss, some more aspects of stability which occur in various situations in the dynamics of general relativity. We argue that not only choice of appropriate topology, but also the nature of perturbation, like metric, matter or initial data, are key factors in deciding whether a property is stable or not. We also study certain properties of space-times which are generic in an appropriate mathematical sense. In particular we argue that Linearization stability of a space-time is a generic property.
