Families, Families, Families!

No matter your size, shape, or pedigree--if you love each other, you are a family! Moms, dads, sisters, brothers — and even Great Aunt Sue — appear in dozens of combinations, demonstrating all kinds of nontraditional families! Silly animals are cleverly depicted in framed portraits, and offer a warm celebration of family love. From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 1—Imagine a house with many rooms, whose walls each have a different color or wallpaper, accenting a family portrait hanging there. On a rustic wooden wall hangs the first portrait—a large family of ducks posing beside a still pond. The next spread shows three pandas in pink vests, much like the pink oriental wallpaper behind...

Genealogies of Barbados Families

"Many of the early settlers of Barbados eventually moved to the mainland of North America and settled in Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas, and other colonies. A son of John Winthrop, for example, was one of the original settlers of Barbados, and two of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Lewis Morris and Arthur Middleton, were descended from men who left Barbados a century earlier. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, in fact, there was a continuous flow of settlers from Barbados to virtually every point on the Atlantic seaboard, with the result that many families in America today trace their origins in the New World first to Barbados." -- publisher website (December 2008).

Law's Families

  • Categories: Law

This new title examines the diversity of perspectives and approaches in family law scholarship and drawing upon this work, provides an analysis of recent trends in family law from a socio-legal and feminist perspective. The book brings together the research findings of empirical studies on the behaviour of families and professionals involved with the law, and synthesizes the main theoretical approaches to understanding intimate connections, family laws and family law reform. It draws upon these works to explain and to question the nature of the 'nuclear' family which lies at the heart of family laws and policy, and which provides the basis for recent family law reform initiatives.

An Anarchy of Families

Winner of the Philippine National Book Award, this pioneering volume reveals how the power of the country's family-based oligarchy both derives from and contributes to a weak Philippine state. From provincial warlords to modern managers, prominent Filipino leaders have fused family, politics, and business to compromise public institutions and amass private wealth—a historic pattern that persists to the present day. Edited by Alfred W. McCoy, An Anarchy of Families explores the pervasive influence of the modern dynasties that have led the Philippines during the past century. Exemplified by the Osmeñas and Lopezes, elite Filipino families have formed a powerful oligarchy—controlling capit...

Reel Families

Amateur film has been seen as the junkheap of private culture. Yet music videos recycle home movies as authenticity; commercials copy its style to sell intimacy; documentaries use it to recount history "from below." Reel Families is the first historical study of amateur film, the most pervasive of media. Patricia Zimmerman charts the history of this medium from 1897 to the present, examining how ideological, technical, and social constraints have stunted amateur film's potential for extending media production beyond corporate monopolies and into the hands of everyday people. She draws on an array of sources—camera manufacturers, patents, early film and photography technology journals, amateur filmmaking magazines, professional magazines, and family-oriented popular magazines—to investigate how the concept of amateur film was transformed within evolving contexts of technology, aesthetics, social relations, and politics.

Families in Troubled Times

The turbulent decade of the 1980s began with financial calamity in several sectors of the United States economy, from automaking to agriculture. The rural Midwest experienced its worst economic decline since the Depression years. Thousands of farmers lost their operations, and the small rural communities that serve agriculture often changed from prosperous business centers to struggling villages with many empty buildings and boarded-up storefronts along their main streets. Families in Troubled Times examines the plight of several hundred rural families who have lived through these difficult years. The participants in the Iowa Youth and Families Project, the subjects of the present study, inc...

Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut

This remarkable work contains the genealogical records of over 950 families of early Hartford, Connecticut. The records are arranged alphabetically by family name, under which may also be found the names and records of allied families. The births, marriages, and deaths in successive generations are marshalled in a tight, skillfully-worked progression of statistics, and additional insights are afforded by the ready accumulation of biographical and historical detail. Based on the available records for the period 1645 to 1825, this collection of genealogies goes a considerable way in making good the deficiencies of the public record.
