Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw On: The Family is John Bradshaw's seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than a million copies since its original publication in 1988. Within its pages, you will discover the cause of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society. Using the latest family research and recovery material in this new edition, Bradshaw also explores the individual in both a family and societal setting. He shows you ways to escape the tyranny of family-reinforced behavior traps--from addiction and co-dependency to loss of will and denial--and demonstrates how to make conscious choices that will transform your life and the lives of your loved ones. He helps you heal yourself and then, using what you have learned helps you heal your family. Finally, Bradshaw extends this idea to our society: by returning yourself and your family to emotional health, you can heal the world in which you live. He helps you reenvision societal conflicts from the perspective of a global family, and shares with you the power of deep democracy: how the choices you make every day can affect--and improve--your world.

Treten Sie ein in eine Welt des Glanzes, der Leidenschaft und der Intrigen – in die Welt Lucrezia Borgias und ihrer skandalösen Familie. Nach dem großen Erfolg von Der Palast der Borgia öffnet Sarah Dunant erneut die schweren Palasttüren und lässt uns einen Blick auf die berüchtigtste Familie Italiens erhaschen. Ein historischer Roman mit allen Finessen, so spannend wie Hilary Mantel, so atmosphärisch wie Eva Stachniak. Es ist das Jahr 1502. Die Gerüchte um Lucrezia Borgia sind zahlreicher denn je, in den Straßen ganz Italiens hört man es raunen: von Lucrezias angeblicher Affäre mit ihrem Bruder Cesare, von der verbotenen Liebe zu ihrem Vater, dem Papst Alexander VI., von Mord und Orgien. Doch wo Lucrezia selbst auftaucht, verstummen die Stimmen – mit ihrer Anmut und ihrem Geschick verzaubert sie die Höfe Italiens. Und gut verbirgt sie dabei ihr Geheimnis, dass nämlich nicht jedes Gerücht unbegründet ist: Tatsächlich hat Cesare aus Eifersucht Lucrezias Ehemann ermordet, ihre große Liebe. Doch einer Borgia werden Wut und Trauer nicht nachgesehen, Lucrezia hat eine Aufgabe zu erfüllen: Eine neue Stadt wartet auf sie, eine neue Liebe und das nächste gefährliche Spiel um Macht und Reichtum.

This up-to-date study on the economics of the family addresses such topical issues as why the birth rate tends to fall as the standard of living rises, why people are marrying less and divorcing more, and why Western populations are getting older. Cigno provides a survey of the most recent literature, and presents its main theoretical results--while offering some new ones--within a simple, unified framework. The book maintains a balance between vigorous theory, intuitive explanation, and discussion of practical implications throughout.

Originally published in 1969, based on the talks R. D. Laing gave in 1967 and 68, this book was intended by the author to evoke questions rather than provide answers. Using concepts of schizophrenia, R.D. Laing demonstrates that we tend to invalidate the subjective and experiential and accept the proper societal view of what should occur within the family.

Around 300 A.D. European patterns of marriage and kinship were turned on their head. What had previously been the norm - marriage to close kin - became the new taboo. The same applied to adoption, the obligation of a man to marry his brother's widow and a number of other central practices. With these changes Christian Europe broke radically from its own past and established practices which diverged markedly from those of the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. In this highly original and far-reaching work Jack Goody argues that from the fourth century there developed in the northern Mediterranean a distinctive but not undifferentiated kinship system, whose growth can be attributed to the role of the Church in acquiring property formerly held by domestic groups. He suggests that the early Church, faced with the need to provide for people who had left their kin to devote themselves to the life of the Church, regulated the rules of marriage so that wealth could be channelled away from the family and into the Church. Thus the Church became an 'interitor', acquiring vast tracts of property through the alienation of familial rights. At the same time, the structure of domestic life was changed dramatically, the Church placing more emphasis on individual wishes, on conjugality, and on spiritual rather than natural kinship. Tracing the consequences of this change through to the present day, Jack Goody challenges some fundamental assumptions about the making of western society, and provides an alternative focus for future study of the European family, kinship structures and marriage patterns. The questions he raises will provoke much interest and discussion amongst anthropologists, sociologists and historians.
