From father's property to children's rights : the history of child custody in the United States by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

The author presents crucial periods of change in social attitudes and the law regarding child custody: the adaptation of English common law in the colonial period, the move toward maternal preference and child welfare in the early twentieth century, the advent in the 1970s of no-fault divorce and joint custody, and the growing influence of the social sciences, especially psychology, in contemporary custody disputes
The custody wars : why children are losing the legal battle and what we can do about it by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Custody Wars Mary Ann Mason, one of the country's foremost family law experts, argues for the restoration of children's rights to the foreground of the custody debate. Mason tackles some of the toughest questions facing the courts today." "Should an abusive husband be given custody of his child? What about unwed fathers? Gay parents? Full-time working mothers? How much say should young children have in court?" "The Custody Wars is the first Book to construct a framework for considering all custody issues from a children's perspective and to offer proposals for changing the way disputes are settled. Drawing on a wealth of legal cases and psychological research - as well as the stories of families caught in these disputes - Mary Ann Mason presents a bold program for reform."--Jacket

Mothers on the fast track : how a new generation can balance family and careers by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume traces the career paths of the first generation of ambitious women who started careers in academia, law, medicine, business, and the media in large numbers in the 1970s and '80s. The authors point out that many highly educated women drop out of the career pipeline that leads men (and some women who sacrifice family life) to the top echelons of academia, law, business, etc. The implications of this feminized brain drain are as profound for the welfare of our nation as they are for the welfare of women and children. The authors argue that meaningful measures of gender equity must include not only women's equal representation in corporate boardrooms and at university podiums but also women's (and men's) ability to sustain satisfactory family lives without being relegated to second-class status -- without the either/or proposition too many ambitious women face. The authors propose measures to reform the workplace from the traditional high-pressured male-centric models to more humane and family-friendly environments where women can be better supported so that our nation need not lose a vast pool of intellectual and creative talent
Do babies matter? : gender and family in the ivory tower by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new generation of scholars differs in many ways from its predecessor of just a few decades ago. Academia once consisted largely of men in traditional single-earner families. Today, men and women fill the doctoral student ranks in nearly equal numbers and most will experience both the benefits and challenges of living in dual-income households. This generation also has new expectations and values, notably the desire for flexibility and balance between careers and other life goals. However, changes to the structure and culture of academia have not kept pace with young scholars{u2019} desires for work-family balance. Do Babies Matter? is the first comprehensive examination of the relationship between family formation and the academic careers of men and women. The book begins with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, moves on to early and mid-career years, and ends with retirement. Individual chapters examine graduate school, how recent PhD recipients get into the academic game, the tenure process, and life after tenure. The authors explore the family sacrifices women often have to make to get ahead in academia and consider how gender and family interact to affect promotion to full professor, salaries, and retirement. Concrete strategies are suggested for transforming the university into a family-friendly environment at every career stage. The book draws on over a decade of research using unprecedented data resources, including the Survey of Doctorate Recipients, a nationally representative panel survey of PhDs in America, and multiple surveys of faculty and graduate students at the ten-campus University of California system

Effectiveness of ceramic coatings in reducing corrosion of five heat-resistant alloys by lead-bromide vapors by Dwight G Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study is presented of the corrosive attack of lead-bromide vapors in an air atmosphere on uncoated, preoxidized, and ceramic-coating specimens of five heat-resistant alloys. After exposure to the vapors for 6 hours at temperatures of 1350, 1500, and 1650 degrees F, a fairly rapid corrosion and a loss of thickness of the uncoated and preoxidized specimens occurred. At the same conditions, ceramic-coated specimens showed no significant attack
Investigation of gases evolved during firing of vitreous coatings on steel by Dwight G Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was made of the nature and source of gases evolved when a ground-coat enamel is applied to low-carbon steel. The principal gases evolved were found to be carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. The cause of primary boil was determined as the evolution of carbon gases from the oxidation of carbon in the steel. Further results indicate that hydrogen, formed from the reaction between dissolved water in the coating and the hot iron base, diffuses into the coating as firing continues. On fast cooling the hydrogen is expelled causing bubbles to form at the interface of the coating. Practically all of the bubble structure in a normally fired enamel was found to be due to some impurity in the clay addition which may be organic matter adsorbed on the clay particles
Relative importance of various sources of defect-producing hydrogen introduced into steel during application of vitreous coatings by Dwight G Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this investigation was to study and to determine experimentally the relative importance of various sources of defect-producing hydrogen introduced into steel during the application of vitreous-type ceramic coatings. Under the conditions investigated, the principal source of defect-producing hydrogen was the dissolved water present in the enamel frit of the coating. Acid pickling, milling water, chemically combined water in the clay, and quenching water were all minor sources. Test results indicate that fishscaling, reboil, and possibly primary boil may be eliminated by using a coating prepared with a water-free frit
