Cook & Omai : the cult of the South Seas by Michelle Hetherington( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1774, the first Polynesian to visit London travelled to England with the crew of Captain Cook's second Pacific voyage and became an overnight sensation. Seen as a living example of the 'Noble Savage', Omai as he was known, was discussed by scientists and philosophers, celebrated in all the best circles and written about in everything from poetry to pornography. He proved a lightning rod for European anxieties regarding imperialism, civilisation and the true nature of mankind. The artistic and literary legacy of Omai's encounter with Europe provides a fascinating insight into European culture in a moment of transition, when old certainties were collapsing and new ones were yet to form. Cook & Omai: The Cult of the South Seas has been developed by the National Library of Australia in association with the Humanities Research Centre of the Australian National University

Marriage, divorce, and children in ancient Rome by Beryl Rawson( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The family has played a central role in most societies, and the complexity and variety of that role demonstrates there is no single definition or pattern of "the family" in any society. Recent studies of ancient Rome have shown that the sentimental ideal of a core nuclear family was strongthroughout the period, but that reality often diverged from the ideal. This study examines many aspects of the composition and inner workings of the Roman family, and provides an illuminating case study of the sentimental ideal versus everyday reality. In addition, Rawson considers the effect ofdivorce, high mortality rates, status, and fostering on the family in ancient Rome
