The Twelfth Edition of Knox and Schacht’s CHOICES IN RELATIONSHIPS helps students see how positive outcomes in personal relationships depend on making intelligent choices. The authors encourage students to explore the tradeoffs involved with choices, show how to view situations in a positive light, and demonstrate that not making a choice is really a choice after all. Through current data, an engaging writing style, interactive pedagogy such as self-assessments, and an emphasis on social policy issues within the context of each chapter, this theme-based marriage and family text encourages lively classroom discussion and demonstrates how research and theory apply to students’ lives. As a result, students learn to approach every intimate relationship with the new freedom and new responsibility that accompany their choices. This streamlined twelfth edition also includes new discussions of the future of marriage and the family, and features an abundance of new research.

This bibliography provides the first complete and copy-based record of the production of new English fiction in the period 1810-1829. The main listings include 2,256 entries, all but forty of which are based on examination of a first edition of the actual novel described. As a result of ten years of Anglo-German co-operation the bibliography makes especial use of the recently discovered collection of English novels of Schloss Corvey in Germany, whose holdings in English fiction 1796-1834 almost certainly exceed those held by any other library. This book also includes an extensive historical introduction by Peter Garside that offers a comprehensive overview of the main aspects of production, marketing and reception of fiction in the Romantic era.
If married in church, medieval women vowed before God and their husbands to be 'bonoure and buxum', that is, meek and obedient in bed and at table. This book is a study of wives in a variety of fourteenth- and fifteenth-century romance, fabliaux, cycle drama, life-writing, lyrics and hagiography. The volume examines key moments that defined life as a married woman: her eligibility to become a wife, the wedding ceremony, her conjugal rights and duties, childbirth and her contribution to the family economy. The book explores the way in which the literary representation of wives is in dialogue with discourses that strove to construct and regulate the role of 'wife'; canon and secular law, marriage liturgy, medical treatises on the female body, sermons, manuals of spiritual instruction, biblical paradigms, conduct books and misogamous writings. Moreover, the volume examines the possibilities for subversion of these paradigms by listening to literary wives speak both within and against these discourses. Real women's attitudes, and strategies of subversion, are woven into the volume throughout, as recorded in church and manorial court records, in their wills and in their writing.
