From the INTRODUCTION.
The importance of our subject cannot be over-estimated.
Value has been called the corner-stone of economics, the fundamental idea, the dominant category of political economy, and, unless it be definitely and correctly determined, that science in its entirety is like a house built upon quicksand; it has no solid, abiding foundations.
Until the commerce of mankind,-until the product of industry can be weighed and balanced in the scales of justice, society in its true sense is impossible, and must inevitably become "an organized institution for picking pockets," such as it is, to a great extent, to-day.
The lack of equity and justice in the processes of production and distribution so painfully manifest at the present time, and so fruitful in evil, has its source in this one fact more than any other,-that there is no just standard measure or unit of value; that which is used as such being simply a disturber of values and a tool of exploitation and injustice through monopoly.
The wide interest manifested in our subject is a remarkable fact of current literature, hardly a paper or a magazine with any educational pretensions being void of some reference to value or to its intimate relations.
The Loco-foco party of 1836, which protested against paper and bank-notes, has split into bimetallists and mono-metallists, and the war of the standards rages from Dan to Beersheba, disintegrating political parties and becoming the bete noir of political saints and sinners.
Honesty is inscribed on both banners, while with intelligence both banners would vanish from the field.
One writer, pleading for a monopolized gold standard, under which rascality is a fine art, is so enthused with the moral aspect (to him) of his theme of monetary aggrandizement, that he makes a national application of the faith that is in him, asking, "Are we a nation of rascals?"
This Armageddon of ignorance continues as though some Joshua of political economy had halted the sun in its celestial course so that the slaughter of words might continue.
The economists fight upon questions to decide which value must be determined. One seeks his unit or standard of value in gold, the other in silver, and both, being blind leaders of the blind, fall into a pit.
The economists talk of value as vaguely as the red Indian talks of the Great Spirit. They compare values by means of a shifting point of comparison (worse than none); they measure values with an elastic thread; they confound utility and value; they differentiate price and value; they, in one breath, proclaim the ideality of value, its elusiveness and mentality; while, in the next breath, they talk of so many grains of this or that material substance as a standard of the ideal.

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.
