The Life of Margaret Alice Murray: A Woman’s Work in Archaeology, by Kathleen L. Sheppard, is a scientific biography of Margaret Alice Murray (1863-1963), exploring all the facets of “women’s work” in the history of archaeology and academia in the first half of the 20th century. This is not another “Great Woman” in place of a “Great Man” biography, but is instead the unlikely story of the first professional female Egyptologist in Britain who has so far been largely ignored by historians.

This edited book draws from work that focuses on the act of telling family stories, as well as their content and structure. The process of telling family stories is linked to central aspects of development, including language acquisition, affect regulation, and family interaction patterns. This book extends across traditional developmental psychology, personality theory, and family studies. Drawing broadly on the epigenetic framework for individual development articulated by Erik Erikson, as well as on conceptions of the family life cycle, the editors bring together contemporary examples of psychological research on family stories and their implications for development and change at different points in the life course. The book is divided into sections that focus on family stories at different points in the life cycle, from early childhood and the beginnings of narrative skill, through adolescence, young adulthood, midlife, and then mature adulthood and its intergenerational meaning. During each of these periods of the life cycle, research focusing on individual development within an Eriksonian framework of ego strengths and virtues is highlighted. The dynamic role of family stories is also featured here, with work exploring the links between family process, intergenerational attachment, and storytelling. Sociocultural theories that emphasize how such development is situated in the wider cultural context are also featured in several chapters. This broad lifespan developmental focus serves to integrate the exciting diversity of this work and foster further questions and research in the emerging field of family narrative. The book is intended primarily for researchers and advanced-level students in the fields of developmental and personality psychology, as well as those in family studies and in gerontology. It may also be of interest to those in the helping professions who are concerned with family therapy and family issues, and may--due to its content and illustrative material--have appeal to a wider market of the lay public. The chapters are written in a readily accessible style and the analyses are presented in a fairly non-technical way. Because family stories are charted across the lifespan, it would be a suitable companion book to a more traditional lifespan textbook in certain courses.

Most people who have taken a biology course in the past 50 years are familiar with the work of David Lack, but few remember his name. Almost all general biology texts produced during that period have a figure showing the beak size differences among the finches of the Galapagos Islands from Lack's 1947 classic, Darwin's Finches. Lack's pioneering conclusions in Darwin's Finches mark the beginning of a new scientific discipline, evolutionary ecology. Tim Birkhead, in his acclaimed book, The Wisdom of Birds, calls Lack the 'hero of modern ornithology.' Who was this influential, yet relatively unknown man? The Life of David Lack, Father of Evolutionary Ecology provides an answer to that question based on Ted Anderson's personal interviews with colleagues, family members and former students as well as material in the extensive Lack Archive at Oxford University.

Charlie Chaplin, the universal comic icon, who with his lovable portrayal of a ‘tramp’made and still makes the world laugh, continues to live in popular memory. The Hitler’s toothbrush moustache, the bowler or derby hat, the coat a size or two too small, the baggy trousers, the floppy shoes and the cane made him the most unforgettable character. The mere mention of his name conjures a picture of him as the tramp. One of the most pivotal stars of the early silent era of Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin’s films made everyone laugh and cry at the same time. The world cinema is indebted to him for films like ‘The Kid’, ‘The Gold Rush’, ‘The Circus,’ ‘City Light’, ‘Modern Times’ and ‘The Great Dictator’. An enigma to the world, people have vast curiosity about his life and his body of work. This book is an attempt to unravel the various aspects of his life and his struggles. The happiness and the despair, the controversies and the acclaim are all revealed in this authentic biography of this great legend.

This is a story that spans from 1955 to sometime about 2045. It is a four-part story of a family originating from Cape Coast and Dowyaaniyili in the Northern Region, the story of a northern prince Dowbia Zangina that marries a German/Fante screen idol called Mercedes Huntman who loves him dearly and agree to move with him to the Dowyaaniyili, where he becomes chief after the death of his father. A military government throws him into Nsawam Medium Prison for allegedly collaborating with his journalist friend Ernest Dzigbordi to overthrow the military junta, and regains his freedom when a democratically elected government takes over. Their Granddaughter Raabia Sedzro goes into politics and becomes the first woman president of her country. She is a successful president and all her good works are cut short when she is assassinated in 2031. The story of President Lankwei Addison takes the reader into campaign travels to the hinterland of Ghana, including some factual events in the governments of Presidents Rawlings, Kufuor, and Atta Mills. Part Four of the story is drum narrations of historical occurrences not told in the first three parts. As recorded by a media guru Dowbia Yousif, the grandson of Mercedes Huntman.

THERE was (in our time) a man most venerable for the holiness of his life, named Benedict, and whom this appellation suited exceedingly well; for he was blessed of God and abundantly endued with His graces. From his earliest youth he possessed the heart and wisdom of old age. For even then, more sedate in his manners than is usual at that period of life, he followed not the allurements of sensuality, gave not way to pleasure, and permitted himself no worldly enjoyment. While yet in this land of exile he despised the world with all its empty show and deceitful riches, although he had every opportunity of enjoying them as much as can be in this life; and he viewed them as a withered and barren tree from which no fruit may be expected. Being of a very respectable family in the vicinity of Nursia, his parents sent him to Rome to receive a liberal education. Aeterna Press

Igor Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring created a near-riot when it premiered in Paris in 1913. Neither the music nor the dancing was like anything that audiences had seen before. Fistfights broke out among the spectators and their noise level was close to that of a modern rock concert. Three years earlier, Stravinsky was virtually unknown. He had had to overcome serious parental objections to even begin composing. Yet by the time that The Rite of Spring premiered, he was already famous for composing The Firebird and Petrushka. These three works—among his very earliest—remain his most popular. Stravinsky was a prolific composer for well over half a century, achieving success in a variety of musical styles. An exile from his native Russia for 48 years, he finally returned in 1962 to a great deal of acclaim. Many people consider him to be one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century.

Frances Sheridan (1724-66) won acclaim in her day as both a playwright and novelist. Her most famous work, the sentimental novel Memoirs of Miss Sidney Bidulph (1761), found favour with Samuel Johnson, while her comedy The Discovery (1763) was staged by David Garrick at Drury Lane. Her fame was later eclipsed by that of her son, the playwright and politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816). Written by Alicia Lefanu (1791-c.1844), her granddaughter, this 1824 publication reaffirms the significance of Frances Sheridan's own work as a writer. Recounting her successes and incorporating her own recollections, the book reveals a woman admired both for her literary output and for her character. This work also includes reflections on the life of her son, whose early writing was influenced by that of his mother. Thomas Moore's two-volume biography of Richard Brinsley Sheridan has also been reissued in this series.

How did a privileged Victorian matron, newly widowed and newly impoverished, manage to raise and educate her six young children and restore her family to social prominence? Mary Baker McQuesten’s personal letters, 155 of which were carefully selected by Mary J. Anderson, tell the story. In her uninhibited style, in letters mostly to her children, Mary Baker McQuesten chronicles her financial struggles and her expectations. The letters reveal her forthright opinions on a broad range of topics — politics, religion, literature, social sciences, and even local gossip. We learn how Mary assessed each of her children’s strengths and weaknesses, and directed each of their lives for the good of the family. For example, she sent her daughter Ruby out to teach, so she could send her earnings home to educate Thomas, the son Mary felt was most likely to succeed. And succeed he did, as a lawyer and mpp, helping to build many of Hamilton’s and Ontario’s highways, bridges, parks, and heritage sites, and in doing so, bringing the family back to social prominence. Mary Baker McQuesten was also president of the Women’s Missionary Society. The appearance, manner, and eloquence of various ministers and politicians all come under her uninhibited scrutiny, providing lively insights into the Victorian moral and social motivations of both men and women and about the gender conflicts that occurred both at home and abroad. This book will satisfy many readers. Those interested in the drama of Victorian society will enjoy the images of the stern Presbyterian matriarch, the sacrificed female, family mental illness, the unresolved death of a husband, and the dangers of social stigma. Scholars looking for research material will find an abundance in the letters, well annotated with details of the surrounding political, social, and current events of the times.
