Modern coverage of world events suggest that war and violence are key to contemporary society. History can convince us that it has ever been so, and many theorist of international relations argue that nothing is likely to change. Roy Weatherford argues that a profound change in social relations is imminent as national sovereignty yields to a democratic world culture, speaking a world language and living as a world wide family - the human family. For too long world peace has seemed a noble but unattainable ideal. Weatherford shows that it is now both economically and politically possible and is therefore our moral duty.

The Richest Family in the World is the fictional tale of the Goodwins, a hard-working, God-fearing family whose deep spirituality serves them well, especially during times of crisis. Like many families around the world, the Goodwins rely on their faith in God to guide them through their many adventures. John and Sarah Goodwin, a farming couple with eight children, have been happily married for forty-two years. All eight children helped work the farm when they were younger; however, much to their father's disappointment, as adults, they have no interest in taking over the family business. As a result, John and Sarah Goodwin must face the biggest heartbreak of their lives-losing the farm. Another tragedy strikes the family when Sarah travels to visit the brother she never knew existed and is critically injured in a plane crash. The richest family in the world is the family that loves, respects, and helps one another, especially through controversy and difficult times. Through the roller coaster adventures of the Goodwins, The Richest Family in the World demonstrates that there are no perfect families-just families who share the faith that, through it all, they will survive and hope and love will prevail.

World-famous photographer Zion Ozeri, a Manhattan resident raised in Israel, is acclaimed by organizations around the world for capturing, in some instances, the last Jewish communities in many countries, from India to Iran. He has traveled the world collecting these priceless cultural portraits of a people united by tradition. To illuminate the Haggadah, the annual retelling of the Jewish people's escape from Egypt, Ozeri's photographs are paired with modern text by noted Jewish scholar and Haggadah expert, Shoshana Silberman, whose A Family Haggadah I and II (Karben) are widely used in Reform and Conservative Jewish family celebrations of Passover. This handsome, affordably priced Haggadah, in trade paperback, is the first of its kind to use photography to illustrate the annual book of prayers and traditions used in over 6,000,000 Jewish households across America each year. Each photo will be accompanied by a facing caption telling the land of origin of its subjects, from Argentina to Bukharin to the land of Israel. This is the only Haggadah to combine contemporary photographs from around the Jewish world with one of the most user friendly and all inclusive commentary by Shoshana Silberman. The photographs were carefully chosen to relate to the text on the page, creating and encouraging a conversation around the Seder table, by children and adults alike. The photographs from Israel, India, Morocco, USA, Argentina, Peru to name but a few, bring to light other Jewish communities and traditions. Shoshana Silberman's notes, interpretations and guidance makes leading the Seder and navigating the book easy. Her comments throughout, help explain the source of many of the different customs that are part of the Seder ceremony among diverse Jewish communities-Sephardim, Ashkenazim, etc.

The Family in the Western World from the Black Death to the Industrial Age

During the last few decades the study of the family has flourished, and in the process many myths about what life was like two or three centuries ago have been debunked. For example, contrary to popular belief, we now know that most women in the preindustrial West did not marry before they were twenty-five. Most households consisted of no more than four or five people, usually including unrelated young people working as servants. And perhaps most surprising of all, multigenerational households were not very common. Pulling together much fascinating information about the family in the preindustrial Western world, Beatrice Gottlieb presents every aspect of this rich subject with clarity and fairness. Her generously illustrated book deals with the households of the wealthy and the poor, courtship and marriage, the care and training of children, and the bonds (and strains) of kinship. The matter of inheritance receives special attention, as it played a substantial role in a world permeated by rank and status, and its importance gave the family a peculiar social and economic significance. With a focus on the ordinary people whose everyday lives strike a responsive chord in all of us, as well as brief appearances by famous people and important events in history--Henry VIII's divorce, Benjamin Franklin's apprenticeship to his brother, and Mary Wollstonecraft's death in childbirth--this remarkable, eminently readable work brings to vivid life the wives and husbands, servants and masters, children and parents of a not too distant past.
