Biblical Dysfunctional Families That Made It, Now So Can You; is a book that takes a private look at different Biblical families and their dysfunctional backgrounds and how they succeeded in spite of them. It brings the bible into 21st century perspective in order to help people facing today issues find a godly solution for them. While times may have changed, the struggles remain real and the same - incest, murder, rejection, greed, lies, misguided ministers, bad in-laws, sibling rivalry and deceptive marriages to name a few. Yet, in spite of it all some; through love, longsuffering, sacrifice and forgiveness rose above these things to make it. This book reminds us all that every family has a bit of dysfunction in it and we must learn to deal with it in order to overcome it. Being from a dysfunctional family does not mean that one needs to remain dysfunctional. We all have a responsibility to the next generation, to learn how to move forward. Only through the love of Christ, sacrifice and willingness can we rid our societies, churches and families of dysfunction. Let us learn from those who were before us, that one day we might become the family that others are privileged to read about.

My book, Secrets of a Dysfunctional Family, is inspired on a true story about the struggle of three sisters’ determination to overcome the odds of drama as children who also were physically, mentally, and emotionally abused and were betrayed by their family. Trying to understand and cope with the hurt, the sisters couldn’t understand why someone who was supposed to care, love, and protect you would do the unthinkable. What the sisters went through as children and the lifestyle they had to grow up in because of what others decided to do to them took a drastic impact on their lives and also the reasons why one sister as a senior in high school, at seventeen years of age, left home as a loner to seek refuge after being abused, disowned, and abandoned by her parents.

In this compelling study, Rena Steinzor highlights the ways in which the government, over the past twenty years, has failed to protect children from harm caused by toxic chemicals. She believes these failures—under-funding, excessive and misguided use of cost/benefit analysis, distortion of science, and devolution of regulatory authority—have produced a situation in which harm that could be reduced or eliminated instead persists. Steinzor states that, as a society, we are neglecting our children's health to an extent that we would find unthinkable as individual parents, primarily due to the erosion of the government's role in protecting public health and the environment. At this pace, she asserts, our children will inherit a planet under grave threat. We can arrest these developments if a critical mass of Americans become convinced that these problems are urgent and the solutions are near at hand. By focusing on three specific case studies—mercury contamination through the human food chain, perchlorate (rocket fuel) in drinking water, and the effects of ozone (smog) on children playing outdoors—Steinzor creates an analysis grounded in law, economics, and science to prove her assertions about the existing dysfunctional system. Steinzor then recommends a concise and realistic series of reforms that could reverse these detrimental trends and serve as a blueprint for restoring effective governmental intervention. She argues that these recommendations offer enough material to guide government officials and advocacy groups toward prompt implementation, for the sake of America's—and the world's—future generations.

It is estimated that as many as 34 million people grew up in alcoholic homes. But what about the rest of us? What about families that had no alcoholism, but did have perfectionism, workaholism, compulsive overeating, intimacy problems, depression, problems in expressing feelings, plus all the other personality traits that can produce a family system much like an alcoholic one? Countless millions of us struggle with these kinds of dysfunctions every day, and until very recently we struggled alone. Pulling together both theory and clinical practice, John and Linda Friel provide a readable explanation of what happened to us and how we can rectify it.

A Dysfunctional Legacy presents a retelling of the defining events that occur in the family of Abraham from the time subsequent to the eviction of Ishmael and Hagar to the time of Jacobs death. Offering a realistic, down-to earth picture of this chosen family rather than the sanctimonious treatment of them that is sometimes presented, the story begins with the end of Abraham and Sarahs marriage and his subsequent marriage to Keturah. When he is instructed by God to sacrifice his son Isaac, he heads on the mission with the hope that God will inform him that a mistake has been made and that his sons life will be saved. But Gods intervention does not come as expected, and Abrahams life takes a turn to the road less travelled. Abrahams story as told in A Dysfunctional Legacy depicts the vaunted promises made to Abraham that have seemingly faded by the time of the death of his grandson, Jacob.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Institut für England- und Amerikastudien), course: Continuity and Change in Contemporary Southern Literature, 18 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In times of the decline of the family as a social parameter we witness an unquestionable popularity of the family novel in American literature. Are authors writing desperately against the unraveling nuclear family, against patchwork constellations and second and third marriages? Is this merely nostalgic reminiscence, a longing for the long lost? In my paper I will argue that the portrayal of the family in Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections and Cynthia Shearer’s The Wonder Book of the Air is a rigid dissection of the pathological cycle of dysfunction, family often produces. It leaves every generation with the burden of the latter’s failures and a lifelong struggle against reproducing revictimization

For over a century now, America has dominated global politics and the global imagination. Yet as the dollar declines, inequality increases, rates of consumption are unprecedented and American unilateralism comes under fire, such hegemony is increasingly unsustainable. In this provocative new book, leading sociologist Jan Nederveen Pieterse asks whether it’s possible for America to chart a different course. In this book, he argues that correcting the course of decline would mean taking drastic steps. Only a reinvention of New Deal politics could address social inequality, while repositioning itself in world politics would mean adopting genuine multilateralism.

Imagine a country where the right to vote is not guaranteed by the Constitution, where the candidate with the most votes loses, and where paperwork requirements and bureaucratic bungling disenfranchise millions. You’re living in it. If the consequences weren’t so serious, it would be funny. An eye-opening, fact-filled companion to the forthcoming PBS documentary starring political satirist and commentator Mo Rocca, Electoral Dysfunction illuminates a broad array of issues, including the Founding Fathers’ decision to omit the right to vote from the Constitution—and the legal system’s patchwork response to this omission; the battle over voter ID, voter impersonation, and voter fraud; the foul-ups that plague Election Day, from ballot design to contested recounts; the role of partisan officials in running elections; and the anti-democratic origins and impact of the Electoral College. The book concludes with a prescription for a healthy voting system by Heather Smith, president of Rock the Vote. Published in the run-up to the 2012 election, Electoral Dysfunction is for readers across the political spectrum who want their votes to count.

“There are families that are dysfunctional with all small letters, others dysfunctional with a capital D, and then there are families that are dysfunctional with all capital letters, and this is your family.” Growing up, the author’s life was far from being perfect. With her parents’ constant fighting (never knowing when it would start, but sure in the knowledge that it would), her older brother’s indifference, her sister’s bipolar and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and her younger brothers’ grossly disrespectful manners toward her (including their tendencies to do the wrong things), it’s no wonder she has kept a lot of anger inside her. And this, she believes, was the cause of her stuttering. This condition has been a debilitating factor for her, robbing her of confidence during her formative years. Yet she persevered, despite all the familial baggage, and managed to finish college and become her own woman.
