Children Remembered

This is a wide- ranging and ambitions multi-disciplinary study that will add significantly to our understanding of demographic structures; the ways in which they have conditioned attitudes and behaviour in the past.

Children Remembered discusses the relationship between parents and children in the past. It focuses on the ways in which adults responded to the untimely deaths of children, whether and how they expressed their grief. The study engages with the hypothesis of ‘parental indifference’ associated with the French cultural historian Philippe Ariès by analysing the changing risk of mortality since the sixteenth century and assessing its consequences. It uses paintings and poems to describe feelings and emotions in ways that are not only highly original, but also challenge traditional disciplinary conventions. The circumstances of infant and child mortality are considered for France and England, while example portraits and poems are selected from England and America. While the work is firmly grounded in demography, it is especially concerned with current debates in social and cultural history, with the history of childhood, the way pictorial images can be ‘read’, and the use as historical evidence to which literature may be put. This is a wide- ranging and ambitions multi-disciplinary study that will add significantly to our understanding of demographic structures; the ways in which they have conditioned attitudes and behaviour in the past.

DEATH 2 MY PAST is a Young Adult Contemporary with a romance similar to Nate and Bronwyn in One of us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus and perfect for fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Although this story is fictional, the mental health content is Own Voices. Abby has the freedom to do whatever she wants in a city with endless possibilities like Rouen. But with no memory of her life before she was ten years old and multiple mental health diagnoses, partying isn’t actually priority #1. When she goes out to celebrate handling her mental health recovery like a boss, Abby runs into a familiar boy with an annoyingly monstrous ego. Of course, she has to at least figure out how she knows him. Curiosity killed the cat... So thank the saints Abby isn’t a cat. 17-year-old Abby embarks down a life altering path more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Her mental health is the least of her worries now. And the bright red cherry of a distraction smashed on top her insanity sundae is kind of hot.

This is the first comprehensive study of family life throughout Spain between 1700 and 1970. Using local and aggregate source material, David Reher builds upon the growing interest of historians and social scientists in the study of the family, and its importance for the demographic, social, and economic reproduction of society. The study adopts methodological approaches from a number of disciplines and encompasses the great regional and local complexity characteristic of Spanish society both now and in the past. The family is considered as a dynamic decision-making unit intent on securing maximum benefit for its members, though the success of this strategy is contingent on the prevailing social, demographic, economic, and cultural realities. Key subjects considered include co-residence patterns, family systems, family demography, family economies, kinship networks, marriage markets, infant care, the elderly, the limits of vulnerability, and the individual life-course.
