After the death of a child : living with loss through the years by Ann K Finkbeiner( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a parent, losing a child is the most devastating event that can occur. Most books on the subject focus on grieving and recovery, but as most parents agree, there is no recovery from such a loss. This book examines the continued love parents feel for their child and the many poignant and ingenious ways they devise to preserve the bond. Through detailed profiles of parents, Ann Finkbeiner shows how new activities and changed relationships with their spouse, friends, and other children can all help parents preserve a bond with the lost child. Based on extensive interviews and grief research, Finkbeiner explains how parents have changed five to twenty-five years after the deaths of their children. The first half of the book discusses the short- and long-term effects of the child's death on the parent's relationships with the outside world, that is, with their spouses, other children, friends, and relatives. The second half of the book details the effect on the parents' internal world: their continuing sense of guilt; their need to place the death in some larger context and their inability sometimes to consistently do so; their new set of priorities; the nature of their bond with the lost child and the subtle and creative ways they have of continuing that bond. Finkbeiner's central point is not so much how parents grieve for their children, but how they love them. Refusing to fall back on pop jargon about "recovery" or to offer easy solutions or standardized timelines, Finkbeiner's is a genuine and moving search to come to terms with loss. Her complex profiles of parents resonate with the honesty and authenticity of uncomfortable emotions expressed and, most importantly, shared with others experiencing a similar loss. Finally, each profile exemplifies the many heroic ways parents learn to live with their pain, and by so doing, honor the lives their children should have lived

The Jasons : the secret history of science's postwar elite by Ann K Finkbeiner( Book )

They call themselves Jason. Their group is a child of the Cold War, and they include scientific stars like Freeman Dyson and Murray Gell-Mann. They've inherited a mission from the Manhattan Project--to counsel the government on the military uses of pure science--and have gathered every summer since 1960 to solve classified problems for the Department of Defense and the intelligence community. Aside from a brief media firestorm during the Vietnam War, they've worked in secrecy with unparalleled freedom. The Jasons have been responsible for breakthroughs ranging from the electronic battlefield to the "Star Wars" missile defense technologies to the national system for predicting global climate. But their mission to keep a vigil over applied science has led them into both moral dilemmas and political stews. Here, science writer Finkbeiner reveals the critical advances--and the unintended consequences--of the Jasons' shadowy work as well as the personalities of the Jasons themselves.--From publisher description
