📒Promises I Can Keep ✍ Kathryn Edin
📝Promises I Can Keep Book Synopsis : Over a span of five years, [the authors] talked in-depth with 162 low-income single moms ... to learn how they think about marriage and family. [This book] offers an intimate look at what marriage and motherhood mean to these women and provides [an] extensive on-the-ground study ... of why they put children before marriage despite the daunting challenges they know lie ahead.. [This book] argues that until poor young women and men have greater access to jobs that lead to financial security - that is, until they can hope for a rewarding life outside of bearing and raising children - they will continue to have children far sooner than most Americans think they should, and in less than ideal circumstances.--
📒A People S History Of Poverty In America ✍ Stephen Pimpare
📝A People s History of Poverty in America Book Synopsis : In this compulsively readable social history, political scientist Stephen Pimpare vividly describes poverty from the perspective of poor and welfare-reliant Americans from the big city to the rural countryside. He focuses on how the poor have created community, secured shelter, and found food and illuminates their battles for dignity and respect. Through prodigious archival research and lucid analysis, Pimpare details the ways in which charity and aid for the poor have been inseparable, more often than not, from the scorn and disapproval of those who would help them. In the rich and often surprising historical testimonies he has collected from the poor in America, Pimpare overturns any simple conclusions about how the poor see themselves or what it feels like to be poor—and he shows clearly that the poor are all too often aware that charity comes with a price. It is that price that Pimpare eloquently questions in this book, reminding us through powerful anecdotes, some heart-wrenching and some surprisingly humorous, that poverty is not simply a moral failure.

📝Promises They Can Keep Book Synopsis : "Using survey data on low-income mothers in Boston, Chicago, and San Antonio, supplemented with ethnographic information, we test 3 propositions ... of mothers' attitudes toward childbearing, marriage, and divorce. We find strong support for the proposition that childbearing outside of marriage carries little stigma and is not thought to hinder one's chances of subsequently marrying. We find qualified support for the proposition that women prefer to have children well before marrying. And we find almost no support for the proposition that women hesitate to marry because they fear divorce. Throughout, we are able to study attitudes among several Hispanic groups as well as among African Americans and non-Hispanic Whites."--Page 2.

📒The Dragon 050376 Presents Simple Complexities ✍ Christopher Preyor
📝The Dragon 050376 Presents Simple Complexities Book Synopsis : People blog for all sorts of reasons, all of which are significant and valid to that individual. For me, it evolved quickly from a test site for fictional writing into a safe haven for my own ideology and belief system where I was free to express myself about any topic that I saw fit. The therapeutic value of this kind of expression became evident when through comments from fellow bloggers, I realized that other people felt the same way I did about many topics that involved our modern day society. In some cases, I stood alone in my ideas, but even in those situations, hearing ideas contrary to my own if nothing else was an enlightening experience. This book is a collection of some of my blog posts...my attempt to contribute to this concept of cooperative growing and learning. I share my ideas and thoughts hoping that youll learn from me or learn from yourself through reacting to my words. You will find some proof within these pages that you and I most assuredly have something in common.

📒Promises To Keep ✍ William W. Fisher, III
📝Promises to Keep Book Synopsis : During the past fifteen years, changes in technology have generated an extraordinary array of new ways in which music and movies can be produced and distributed. Both the creators and the consumers of entertainment products stand to benefit enormously from the new systems. Sadly, we have failed thus far to avail ourselves of these opportunities. Instead, much energy has been devoted to interpreting or changing legal rules in hopes of defending older business models against the threats posed by the new technologies. These efforts to plug the multiplying holes in the legal dikes are failing and the entertainment industry has fallen into crisis. This provocative book chronicles how we got into this mess and presents three alternative proposals--each involving a combination of legal reforms and new business models--for how we could get out of it.
