Laws and Perspectives of `Sending' Countries
The incidence of foreign adoptions from the nations of South America, Eastern Europe and Asia has greatly increased as a result of the drastic decrease in the number of adoptable babies from western nations. This book, written by adoption workers and legal scholars from twelve `sending' countries, presents, for the first time, details of those countries' adoption laws and procedures as well as international agreements governing foreign adoptions.
An important and long-awaited reference book for potential adoptive couples, child care workers, legal experts and social service agencies.

Abstract

This paper develops ‘primitive accumulation’ prior to and then in Karl Marx’s œuvre. By exploring the concept in Adam Smith and Sir James Steuart the paper highlights early influences on Marx’s evolving constructions. Marx’s construction in the Grundrisse begins with a logical determination much like Smith’s and moves, by drawing on Steuart, towards a socio-historical determination of a transitional violence. In Capital, ‘primitive accumulation’ still retains its transitional structure and delimited history, but it also points to the oppressive afterlife of the processes of primitive accumulation. The political key to ‘primitive accumulation’ in Capital flows from determining primitive accumulation as temporally bounded, but having an afterlife in the oppressive social reproduction of capitalist societies. Against deriving political stakes through extended readings of ‘primitive accumulation’, this paper shows that an ‘originating’ view is textually accurate in a way that centres rather than sidelines the social reproduction of oppressions in capitalist societies.
