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.

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.

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.

The fascinating true story of the characters in Hulu's "Mrs. America" and a broader portrait of the two women's movements that spurred an enduring rift between liberals and conservatives. "The many admirers of 'Mrs. America' . . . will find great satisfaction in [Divided We Stand] . . . a clear, compelling and deeply insightful volume." -The Washington Post One of Smithsonian Magazine's Ten Best History Books of the Year In the early 1970s, an ascendant women's rights movement enjoyed strong support from both political parties and considerable success, but was soon challenged by a conservative women's movement formed in opposition. Tensions between the two would explode in 1977 at the congressionally funded National Women's Conference in Houston, Texas. As Bella Abzug, Gloria Steinem, and other feminists endorsed hot-button issues such as abortion rights, the ERA, and gay rights, Phyllis Schlafly and Lottie Beth Hobbs rallied with conservative women to protest federally funded feminism and launch a pro-family movement. Divided We Stand reveals how crucial women and women's issues have been in the shaping of today's political culture. After the National Women's Conference, Democrats continued to back women's rights in cooperation with a more diverse feminist movement while the GOP abandoned its previous support for women's rights and defined itself as the party of family values, irrevocably affecting the course of American politics.
