From the INTRODUCTION.
The modern family unit has been affected by the ongoing crisis. Stable marriages are on the decline, as is a sense of community with friends and neighbors. These factors impact our most precious resource - children- as more and more children grow up without a stable household to give them basic guidance, in a society that ridicules "old-fashioned" values and morality. In this book, Ms.Yi provides fundamental support for parents to educate their children about what is right or wrong, worthy or unworthy, important or unnecessary, in order to provide a basis for sound ethics and judgment in adulthood. Ms.Yi discusses generational changes in family structure, roles, and responsibilities and the ways in which these shifts can affect core values. This Guide's thorough and thought-provoking text gives parents and caregivers the opportunity to interact and reflect on fundamental aspects of their role in educating children and preparing them for life, as well as providing tools and a framework of healthy values. Preserving the family unit gives room to social improvement. The main purpose of Ms. Yi s Guide is setting a new path for the generations to follow.

Heller House is a personal memoir by Neil Heller, tracing his family's history from a Jewish shtetl, in what is now Lithuania, to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York during the early 20th Century, to Brooklyn during the Great Depression and World War II, to building homes on Long Island following the War. An excerpt - "The only place I remember living for the first eighteen years of my life was at 763 East 52nd Street in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York. Grandpa Lou first rented the house from the bank that owned it. A lot of houses were foreclosed during the depression and the banks would rent them out. After a short while, he bought it. I can remember the house it like it was yesterday and it is over sixty years ago. It made such a strong impression on me. Your mother lived down the block across the street in a big detached brick house with a large front porch you could sit on. Her brother, Marty, was my best friend. To me, your Mom was just my friend's kid sister. Little did I know that I would marry her one day."
Theory of Value, a book with a total of 370,000 words, was published in 2007 by China Renmin University Press. This book was revised on the basis of the early works by Professor Li Deshun Theory of Value: A Study of Subjectivity (1987, China Renmin University Press). Before and after the publication of Theory of Value: A Study of Subjectivity, the philosophical circle in China was under the far-reaching influence of the mechanical materialism prevailing in the Former Soviet Union, which interpreted the issue of value as idealism and bourgeois and couldn t comprehend subjectivity of Man, the existence of truth in a state of interrelations and the pattern of process thinking and practical thinking. The book Value Theory: A Study of Subjectivity, with a focus on subjectivity, has not only resolved various questions concerning value, but also exerted deep changes on the thinking pattern of China's philosophical circle. Its publication has caused tremendous effect in public and has a profound and lasting social impact. Therefore, it has been granted the first National Book Award, Award for Research Achievements in the Humanities and Social Sciences (The Ministry of Education) and Award for Research Achievements in the Humanities and Social Sciences (Beijing Municipality). Afterwards, Professor Li Deshun has conducted a further research into relevant issues centered on the theory of value (theoretical issues, significance of discipline and application in practice) and the overall Marxist philosophy. Having pondered over these issues for twenty years and gained a fair knowledge in this field, Professor Li set about revising Theory of Value. This revised edition was published in 2007, which is the exact book we recommend to your press. Theory of Value has exerted a wide impact in China. Its influence reaches not only the philosophical circle but also the realms of law, political science, literature, archives science and even daily life of populace. To put in another way, it has influenced the values and the thinking pattern of a whole generation in China. Part of this book has been translated into English and Russian, and was introduced to former Soviet Union and the United States. Dr. John M. Abbarno, Professor of Philosophy in D'Youville College, former Chairman of International Association for Values, once expressed his hope to see the publication of the English version of Theory of Value.
