Moral Values and Political Behaviour in Ancient Greece: From Homer to the End of the Fifth Century by A.W.H. Adkins
Requirements: .PDF reader, 5.32MB
Overview: Greek society developed more rapidly than did its values or the presuppositions on which the values were based. By the end of the fifth century the Greeks faced serious problems, not because they had abandoned traditional values to which they needed to be recalled, but because they retained them in a situation far different from that in which the values had developed and were appropriate.

New Family Values by Andrew Solomon

New Family Values by Andrew Solomon
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 172 MB
Overview: Drawing on dozens of intimate audio interviews with families from all across the country, award-winning psychologist and writer Andrew Solomon redefines what it means to be an "ideal family" in America today. Solomon observes that America, led in large part by the women’s, civil rights, and gay rights movements, has undergone a radical social shift in the last few decades.
While three-quarters of American children lived in families with two (first-time) married, heterosexual parents in the 1960s, today less than half do. The conventional family, Solomon argues, has broken into a multitude of perfect families, including gay families, multiparent families, adoptive families, foster families, families built through assisted reproduction, single parent-headed families, and child-free families. Although the structure of family has changed, economic and legal structures lag behind and need to adapt to accommodate this explosive new reality.
