The divorce revolution : the unexpected social and economic consequences for women and children in America by Lenore J Weitzman( Book )

22 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based upon interviews with judges, lawyers, and divorced persons in California, and data collected from that state's court dockets, this volume presents the first systematic examination of the social and economic effects of divorce law reform. Sociologist Weitzman concludes that while the abolition of grounds, fault, and consent has eliminated much of the acrimony previously associated with divorce proceedings, this, together with the institution of gender-neutral standards for property awards and child support, has resulted in increased economic hardship and social dislocation for divorced women and dependent children. Weitzman does not intend to extrapolate her data, conclusions, and recommendations to the whole country; however, it is reasonable to believe that they have national implications.

Biased textbooks; images of males and females in elementary school textbooks in five subject areas. What you can do about biased textbooks by Lenore J Weitzman( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research report focuses on the latent content of textbooks, the information attempting to instruct the child in ethical and moral values. Textbooks being used in the average classrooms in the United States today in grades one through six were examined and analyzed to discover the way the two sexes are portrayed and the types of behavior encouraged for each. The major focus of this analysis was textbook illustrations. Three major classifications were used: age, race and sex of individuals portrayed. Illustrations of adults comprise 28% of the pictures in the first grade and 73% in the sixth grades. Eighty-one er cent of the illustrations portrayed whites, while only 8% portray blacks. The percentage of illustrations of females varies by grade level from 32% in the second grade to only 20% by the sixth grade. The world of boys is shown as one of action and energy; the world of girls is shown as one of passivity, watching, and waiting for boys. While men are shown in over 150 occupational roles, almost all the women in textbooks are housewives. Science was discovered to have the most male oriented tests. Suggestions for what individuals can do about biased textbooks are listed for students, teachers, teacher groups, administrators, and parents and community groups. (MKM)
The Holocaust in Northern Greece: The war against the Sephardic Jews of Thessaloniki by Harry D Dinella( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies the Holocaust in Greece during World War II, and particularly the Holocaust in Northern Greece where 81% of Greece's 78,500 Jews lived. Although increasing scholarship has been devoted to the Holocaust that occurred in Greece in recent years, it remains a backwater in terms of the overall Holocaust and the genocide perpetrated against its 6 million European victims. During the war, the majority of Greece's Jews were Sephardic or "Spanish Jews" whose ancestors came to Ottoman (Turkish-occupied) Greece in the late 15th century. The Jews of northern Greece, and particularly the 56,000 Jews of Thessaloniki, constituted a unique civilization that--until the arrival of the German Army in the spring of 1941--had developed and endured first in Spain and then Greece for almost two millennia. This project examines the circumstances by which the Germans were so successful in their goal to murder the vast majority of Greek Jews, and particularly the large community of "Spanish" Jews in Thessaloniki
