Sourcebook of Family Theories and Methods: A Contextual Approach - Pauline BossOrigins We call this book on theoretical orientations and methodological strategies in family studies a sourcebook because it details the social and personal roots (i.e., sources) from which these orientations and strategies flow.

In the mid 1980s there emerged in some quarters the sense that it was time for family studies to take stock of itself.

For these two teenagers - brother and sister, black and white - the 1980's were a trial by fire.

Herakles - Euripides, Christian Wolff, Thomas SleighIn Herakles, Euripides reveals with great subtlety and complexity the often brutal underpinnings of our social arrangements. The play enacts a thoroughly contemporary dilemma about the relationship between personal and state violence to civic order.

Depicting Herakles slowly going mad by Hera, the wife of Zeus, this play continues to haunt and inspire readers. Hera hates Herakles because he is one of Zeus' children born of adultery, and in his madness, Herakles is driven to murder his own
