The divorce culture by Barbara Dafoe Whitehead ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Barbara Dafoe Whitehead's Atlantic Monthly article "Dan Quayle Was Right" ignited a media debate on the effects of divorce that rages still. In The Divorce Culture she expands her argument.

Franklin's thrift the lost history of an American virtue by David Blankenhorn ( )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Americans today often think of thrift as a negative value & mdash;a miserly hoarding of resources and a denial of pleasure. Even more telling, many Americans don't even think of thrift at all anymore. Franklin & rsquo;s Thrift challenges this state of mind by recovering the rich history of thrift as a quintessentially American virtue. The contributors to this volume trace how, from the eighteenth century on, the idea and practice of thrift has been a robust part of the American vision of economic freedom and social abundance. For Benjamin Franklin, who personified and promoted the idea, thrift mean
Why there are no good men left : the romantic plight of the new single woman by Barbara Dafoe Whitehead ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A revolution in higher education has created the most independent generation of young women in history, and a revolution in mating has created a prolonged search for Mr. Right. Through extensive research and interviews, Whitehead documents the social climate in which the demands of work, the rise of cohabitation, the disappearance of courtship, and the exacting standards of educated women are leading them to stay single longer and to find the search for a mate even harder when the time comes. Why are there no good men left? Because the mating culture has changed. A 'relationship system' that allows for a wide range of short-term unions is replacing the 'marrying system.' If commitment happens at all, it is likely to first take the form of cohabitation to test for compatibility. The new 'relationship' culture is no longer organized for the benefit of young women who hope to marry in time to have children. The bad news is that love has become work; the good news is that the success rate is high. At the end of a long and perplexing quest, the vast majority of women will marry"--From publisher's description
