This award-winning book brings together Chizuko Ueno's groundbreaking essays on the rise and fall of the modern family in Japan. Combining historical, sociological, anthropological, and journalistic methodologies, Ueno â?? who is arguably the foremost feminist theoretician in Japan â?? delineates in vivid detail how the family has been changing in form and function in the last hundred years. In each chapter, Ueno introduces the reader to a different facet of modern Japanese family life, ranging from children who fantasize about being orphans to the elderly who confront 'pre-senescence.' The central focus is on the housewife â?? her history, her ever-changing responsibilities, her ways of surviving mid-life crisis. This is an indispensable book for students and scholars seeking to understand modern Japan.

The Un Making Of The Modern Family

This book is neither an indictment of the new family nor a rallying cry. It is a classical exercise of family sociology that draws upon a range of disciplines -- history, anthropology, psychology, and demography -- to provide an interpretive model for understanding contemporary changes in the family. It explores traditional family forms in order to identify changes that gave birth to the ideal type of the modern family, and it discusses how the modern family's constituent elements (the family as institution, conjugal and parent-child relationships, and gender and sexuality) relate to modernity's central feature -- the concept of the individual. By reconstructing an archetype of the modern family, this book explains why individuals have experienced its deconstruction as a profound identity crisis.

How did a religion fin ended on the loosening of earthly ties come to extol the virtues of the traditional family? In this richly-textured history ofthe relationship between Christianity and the family, Rosemary Radford Ruether traces their development to reveal the misconceptions at the heart of the 'family values' debate. Beginning with the Jewish and Roman families of antiquity, Ruether shows that the anti-family traditions of the Gospels and early Christianity can be understood as a critique of oppressive forms of family. But Christianity later defined and relied upon family life as it grew into a stable social force. Taking us to the present, Ruether examines how contemporary claims on the family - from same-sex marriage to feminism to the fragmentation of Christianity - shape the way Christians respond to and resist new definitions of private life. Finally, she argues convincingly for a way in which religion can accommodate the needs of believers without interference from the state, and how Christianity - always fluid and ever-evolving can satisfy its role to its adherents without ompromising its importance as a source of spiritual resilience. Rosemary Radford Ruether, one of the world's leading feminist theologians, is the author of over thirty books, and was the Georgia - Harkness Professor of Applied Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Seminary.

TV presenter, bestselling author and psychologist Nigel Latta gives common-sense and amusing answers to the complex issues surrounding today's family in its many and varied forms. Utilising both the best current research about stepfamilies and over two decades of clinical experience, Nigel traverses the dilemmas and questions that modern family life presents. The shape of the modern family has changed hugely in the last twenty years. Once upon a time mum, dad, and a three or four kids used to be the norm, but that type of family is almost an anomaly now. Stepfamilies, separated families, single parents, grandparents raising their children's children, bitter family court battles, and complicated access arrangements . . . it's a new world full of complicated family arrangements and conundrums. The Modern Family Survival Guide covers many key topics such as separation and divorce; surviving family court; sharing custody; co-parenting when your ex is difficult; step parenting; adoption issues; parenting the 'only child'; gay and lesbian parents; grandparents raising grandchildren, and much more.
