Descrizione del libro

11 agosto 2012
To JOHN MACFARLANE, Librarian of the Imperial Library Calcutta, My dear Macfarlane Just as you had completed a valuable monograph on that enterprising French publisher Antoine Verardyou were whirled away to India to organise a great library at Calcutta. I have seen it stated in the newspapers, on high authority that your Imperial Library is to be a second British Museum, but I am afraid that, even when fully developed by your energy and skilly it will contain no Verards. I hope, however, that when you come over on furlough you will resume the pleasant studies we used to pursue together, and that you may even be induced to read another paper before the learned Society of which you were once my fellow secretary. To keep alive your interest in old books is thus a reasonable pretext for dedicating to you these bookish essays. My real hope is that as they stand on your book-shelf they may remind you of the original British Museum and of the many friends you left behind here after your seventeen years work amid our Bloomsbury fogs. Faithfully yours, Alfred

4.0 su 5 stelle Hats off to the grandmother of adoption reform and reunification efforts. 9 luglio 2011
Di Judith Land - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
This book should be preserved as a key exhibit in the permanent national historic record. Jean Patton, mother of the modern American adoption reform movement, had significant influence over the American social and political debate over adoption. She was opposed to closed records, and she worked tirelessly to transform the legal system in the United States to allow open records. Jean Patton encouraged adoption reunions as healthy for orphaned, fostered, and adopted children during a time when the majority of states maintained strict closed adoption records. She was an energetic visionary, a search activist, and legendary figure famous for her social and political influence on the national scene. In this book, she discusses her rationale for doing adoption searches: "...the equality of all citizens, the self-determination of individuals, and adoptees' emotional need for a curative and breakthrough reality that would finally make sense out of their disrupted life stories." Her vision of an independent, voluntary adoption registry through which natal relatives might be reunited dates to an article she wrote in 1949, making it the earliest such suggestion in the documentary record. Mutual consent registries proliferated after 1975. Late in life, Jean Patton was a supporter and mentor to Judith Romano during her quest to discover her birth family in the book Adoption Detective: Memoir of an Adopted Child (page 276).
