The man who made lists : love, death, madness, and the creation of Roget's Thesaurus by Joshua C Kendall( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Mark Roget--polymath, eccentric, synonym aficionado--was a complicated man. He was a scholar obsessed with his work, yet he had an allure that endeared him to his contemporaries--not to mention a host of female admirers. But most notably, he made lists. Roget longed for order in his chaotic world. His father's premature death and the mental illness of his mother and sister threatened to plunge him into his own madness. And so, at the age of eight, he started making lists. From the heavenly bodies to animals, vegetables, and minerals, young Roget began his quest to put everything in its place, one word at a time. Roget lived a colorful life, full of unexpected twists and discoveries: he narrowly avoided jail in Napoleon's France, invented the slide rule, and of course, brought life to the book that would become synonymous with synonyms.--From publisher description
First dads : parenting and politics from George Washington to Barack Obama by Joshua C Kendall( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the 43 men who have served in the nation's highest office, 38 have fathered biological children and the other five adopted children. Each president's parenting style reveals much about his beliefs as well as his psychological make-up. James Garfield enjoyed jumping on the bed with his kids. FDR's children, on the other hand, had to make appointments to talk to him. In a lively narrative, based on research in archives around the country, Kendall shows presidential character in action. Readers will learn which type of parent might be best suited to leading the American people and, finally, how the fathering experiences of our presidents have forever changed the course of American history

The foster care crisis : translating research into policy and practice( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inadequacy of the foster care system has long been recognized. One of the biggest obstacles to reforming the system is the relative unavailability of research data from the field, information that would shed light on key empirical trends and pressing issues. This long overdue volume provides a much-needed overview of the current state of foster care. Leading researchers and practitioners summarize and discuss the results of their current research, providing through their data an unparalleled, detailed glimpse of the inner workings of the foster care system in its entirety. The volume is also valuable for its survey and syntheses of important issues and trends affecting foster care. Subjects discussed include welfare reform, reporting systems, family reunification, mental health services, and the needs of minority children. Wide-ranging and detailed in its coverage, this collection is destined to become an essential reference and guide to the foster care system
