Dividends of kinship : meanings and uses of social relatedness by Peter P Schweitzer( )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection reaffirms the importance of kinship, and of studying kinship, within the framework of social anthropology." "The contributors examine both the benefits and the burdens of kinship across cultures and explore how 'relatedness' is inextricably linked with other concepts which define people's identities, such as gender, power and history. With examples from a wide range of areas including Austria, Greenland, Portugal, Turkey and the Amazon, the book covers themes such as how people choose and activate kin; leadership, spiritual power and kinship; inheritance, marriage and social inequality; familial sentiment and economic interest; and the role of kinship in Utopian communes." "It will be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in anthropology, and across the social sciences."--Jacket

Family, kinship and state in contemporary Europe by Hannes Grandits( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kinship is at the heart of European society, sharing with the state responsibility for welfare and social reproduction. But the workings of kinship and their connection to state policies remain controversial. Received theories have had to be revised in the light of social and demographic change and accumulating evidence of long-standing cultural differences. In this volume the authors use network data to measure the extent of mutual assistance between relatives and explore its connection to residence and marriage patterns, intergenerational relations, gender roles and fertility. They go on to review the findings of the whole study û drawing critically on theories of altruism, reciprocity, cultural transmission and socio-economic change. The book closes with some recommendations for policy. --Book Jacket

The Tracer gas method of determining the charging efficiency of two-stroke-cycle diesel engines by P. H Schweitzer( Book )

2 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A convenient method has been developed for determining the scavenging efficiency or the charging efficiency of two-stroke-cycle engines. The method consists of introducing a suitable tracer gas into the inlet air of the running engine and measuring chemically its concentration both in the inlet and exhaust gas. Monomethylamine CH3NH2 was found suitable for the purpose as it burns almost completely during combustion, whereas the "short-circuited" portion does not burn at all and can be determined quantitatively in the exhaust. The method was tested both on four-stroke and on two-stroke engines and is considered accurate within 1 percent
