Family and Kinship in England 1450-1800 guides the reader through the changing relationships that made up the nature of family life from the late medieval period to the beginnings of industrialisation. It gives a clear introduction to many of the intriguing areas of interest that this field of history has opened up, including childhood, youth, marriage, sexuality and death. This book introduces the elements that made up family life at different stages of its development, from creation to dissolution, and traces the degree to which family life in England changed throughout the early modern period. It also provides a valuable synthesis of the debates and research on the history of the family, highlighting the different ways historians have investigated the topic in the past. This new edition has been fully updated to incorporate the latest research on urban communities, emotions and interactions between the family and the parish, town and state. Supported by a range of compelling primary source documents, a glossary of terms, a chronology and a who's who of key characters, this is an essential resource for any student of the history of the family.

Society and Bureaucracy in 21st Century Ghana

This book examines the factors that affect work performance of Ghanaian bureaucrats. Three decades ago Robert Price (1975) examined the impact that kinship ties had on the motivation of Ghanaian bureaucrats. This study followed the work of Price by replicating his mix of interviews and surveys, with the addition of questions that incorporate recent work on bureaucracy by John Brehm and Scott Gates (1997). Utilizing a mix of interviews and surveys of public servants from the Civil Service and the Ghana Education Service, I find that motivation of Ghanaian bureaucrats involves pecuniary, solidary and functional preferences as well as kinship ties. This is an excellent book for courses in public administration, African government and politics, and for scholars interested in the study of motivation. It will also be useful for students of sociology.
