The Civil War has long been described as a war pitting "brother against brother." The divided family is an enduring metaphor for the divided nation, but it also accurately reflects the reality of America's bloodiest war. Connecting the metaphor to the real experiences of families whose households were split by conflicting opinions about the war, Amy Murrell Taylor provides a social and cultural history of the divided family in Civil War America. In hundreds of border state households, brothers--and sisters--really did fight one another, while fathers and sons argued over secession and husbands and wives struggled with opposing national loyalties. Even enslaved men and women found themselves divided over how to respond to the war. Taylor studies letters, diaries, newspapers, and government documents to understand how families coped with the unprecedented intrusion of war into their private lives. Family divisions inflamed the national crisis while simultaneously embodying it on a small scale--something noticed by writers of popular fiction and political rhetoric, who drew explicit connections between the ordeal of divided families and that of the nation. Weaving together an analysis of this popular imagery with the experiences of real families, Taylor demonstrates how the effects of the Civil War went far beyond the battlefield to penetrate many facets of everyday life.
Before landing a spot on the megahit Netflix show Orange is the New Black; before wow-ing audiences as Lina on Jane the Virgin; and before her incredible activism and work on immigration reform, Diane Guerrero was a young girl living in Boston. One day, while Guerrero was at school, her undocumented immigrant parents were taken from their home, detained, and deported. Guerrero's life, which had been full of the support of a loving family, was turned upside down. Reflective of the experiences of millions of undocumented immigrant families in the United States, Guerrero's story is at once heartbreaking and hopeful.
The divided families problem is a serious social issue in North and South Korea, involving hundreds of thousands of first generation divided family members, most of whom have not seen their relatives since the Korean War. It is the most pressing humanitarian issue between the two Koreas, and is connected to the greater issue of human rights in North Korea today. However, little serious academic work exists on the subject, in either English or Korean. This new study, based on research conducted in Korea, including interviews in 2001 with Korean families who benefited from the most recent exchanges, addresses the many issues surrounding the divided family problem, and highlights its importance in the path towards Korean rapprochement.
Divided Family is my autobiography. I moved with my parents when I was 5 years old to Kenya from Punjab, India, when the WWII was going on. My father along with a partner opened a furniture making business. He left the business in the hand of his partner for six months to take care of his mother in India. The flourishing business was in bad debts on his return from India. He took over the business. His brother undertook to live as a joint family and work together to pay off the business and his wedding expenses. His brother turned his back against my father. As such, as a first-born child, when I was about 10 years old many responsibilities fell on me according to Indian culture and my upbringing. Due to the uprising of the Mau Mau and struggle for the independence of Kenya, my father never recovered entirely from his financial troubles. When I started working, my father took my wages to maintain household expenses. After completing by college education part-time, I got married and left for England for further study and work. As I failed to oblige my father with a financial support from England, he was adamant that I should return to Kenya, and I did. As parents had more authority over the lives of their children, I had to hold up a prefect silent, but I broke the silence. This contributed to family verbal abuses from my parents and his other siblings. This made me to seek employment in Zambia and escape the British permit requirements for Asian British citizens to enter their homeland, United Kingdom. I eventually moved to Canada. This is my first attempt at publishing a full book. Divided Family is suitable for general readers who are seeming for some knowledge about an Asian child is docile and amenable by their parent’s. There's a sequence if a child goes against his parents' wishes and goes away from the family to settle in a new country as a migrant. He confronts new issues, but how he got the best.
This book of fiction contains references to historical facts. There were actually families who were split asunder by the choice of defending the North or the South. History shows that the Southern Home Guard became a source of disgrace to most southerners. The destruction of the Southern homes, fields and courthouses by General Sherman were used to force the people to surrender and swear allegiance to the United States of America. Immense suffering and death occurred on both sides. The psychological injury to the nation’s psyche endures even today in some parts of the country.
