Women have shaped immigrant families, reared new generations, and pioneered significant changes in their communities.

This is an innovative study of middle-class behaviour and property relations in English towns in Georgian and Victorian Britain. Through the lens of wills, family papers, property deeds, account books and letters, the author offers a reading of the ways in which middle-class families survived and surmounted the economic difficulties of early industrial society. He argues that these were essentially 'networked' families created and affirmed by a 'gift' network of material goods, finance, services and support, with property very much at the centre of middle-class survival strategies. His approach combines microhistorical studies of individual families with a broader analysis of the national and even international networks within which these families operated. The result is a significant contribution to the history, and to debates about the place of structural and cultural analysis in historical understanding.

Stories 4 Women, a collection of true short stories about the 'fairer' sex, was created on an understanding that there is an unspoken solidarity that bonds us as women. However, we four writers felt it appropriate to give a voice to some of the stories unique to the woman's experience, including the ones that seldom are discussed in the open. They range from the somber situations of being the victims of sexual assault and the death of a loved one, to the more whimsical reminiscences about our teenage crushes and childhood tendencies. Think back to how you felt when you started doing things for yourself or when that guy who you thought was "the one" broke your heart. Remember when you took that long walk down the aisle and into your new life, or when you discovered that first stray gray hair sprouting from your head? These short stories go to show that regardless of age, race, political and religious affiliations, and background, we can all relate to the issues of womanhood. Stories 4 Women also shares insights into what enduring these experiences has molded us into: We are thoughtful, seasoned, refreshed, independent, accomplished, nostalgic, forgiving and self-assured women. These are our stories. These are your stories. These are stories for women.
