2 Kidding Ourselves: Breadwinning, Babies, and Bargaining Power Mahony, Rhona - SIGNED BY AUTHOR
New York, New York, U.S.A. Basic Books 1995 0465085938 / 9780465085934 Hard Copy Very Good+ Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Author

Dust jacket is in Near Fine condition. Sticker on dust jacket says "Autographed Copy". From the publisher: "Why do so many smart, career-oriented, even ardently feminist women end up with nearly sole responsibility for running their households and raising their children? Why does it happen even in couples who had promised to share that work equally? Kidding Ourselves traces the decisions that women and men make -- usually unwittingly -- before and after marriage, and especially after the birth of a child, that lead inevitably to an old-fashioned division of labor at home. It also explains why change is necessary. As long as nearly all men devote themselves first and foremost to paying work, they will on average out-earn women, who reduce their hours and travel in their paying job once they have a child. With this groundbreaking book, Rhona Mahony suggests practical ways to bring men into child raising and end the unfair burden of women's second shift."

It was Vietnam's greatest tragedy...children caught in the crossfire of war...too incidental for the concerns of generals, and all uncertain of their fate under the advancing North Vietnamese Army. 'The War Cradle' tells of the events leading up to the last days of the Vietnam War and of the search and rescue of the oppresssed orphans. The American soldier was confronted with the misery of the children at eery turn. Sometimes there were his friend...sometimes the enemy. Stalwart nuns sheltered sick and dying babies in poverty-ridden orphanages and looked to the West for salvation and safe homes. Not all warriors carry guns...there asre some who fight an equally fierce battle without them. This is the true, untold story of not only the orphans, but of the camaraderie and courage of people who were obsessed with saving the children. . . . There were hundreds of . . . volunteeers . . . all of whom lived the tense moments of what some have called 'the greatest rescue mission of the century".

With each generation, James skillfully handles the unfolding drama with humor, intellect, honesty, and integrity. His literary balance between the serious and the humorous takes the reader through an uplifting spiritual journey. Having been a priest for sixteen years, James resigned and married Joyce. Still a devout member of the Catholic faith, James shares a unique perspective on the sex abuse crisis inside some of today's churches and offers sensitive suggestions for reform. He also provides a brief look at historical reforms in the Catholic Church. More than a story, Worth Remembering is also a helpful guide to prospective family storytellers wishing to preserve and record family tales. The 10 how-to hints will assist geneaologists and family storytellers through the process of writing their family tales."
