In the 1800s, the 2.8 square miles in New Jersey known today as Little Silver consisted mostly of farms, woods, and saltwater marshes. Towards the turn of the century, John T. Lovett opened his famous nursery, and resort hotels began to spring up on the scenic Little Silver Point peninsula. In the 1890s, the construction of a dock for Patten Line steamboats at the end of the Point increased the volume of summer visitors. Separated from Shrewsbury Township in 1923, Little Silver has remained a prosperous and vibrant community over the years. The farms and nurseries have almost all been replaced by housing today, but residents find that their shrubs and backyard gardens grow beautifully on the fertile land. Over the years, many New York and northern New Jersey commuters have decided to make Little Silver their home, traveling by rail or auto to their jobs. Karen Schnitzspahn's Little Silver is a tribute to the peaceful but significant development of the borough from the 1880s to the 1970s.

The Field Sports Committee at Wrykyn—that is, at the school which stood some half-mile outside that town and took its name from it—were not lavish in their expenditure as regarded the changing accommodation in the pavilion. Letters appeared in every second number of the Wrykinian, some short, others long, some from members of the school, others from Old Boys, all protesting against the condition of the first, second, and third fifteen dressing-rooms. “Indignant” would inquire acidly, in half a page of small type, if the editor happened to be aware that there was no hair-brush in the second room, and only half a comb. “Disgusted O. W.” would remark that when he came down with the Wandering Zephyrs to play against the third fifteen, the water supply had suddenly and mysteriously failed, and the W.Z.’s had been obliged to go home as they were, in a state of primeval grime, and he thought that this was “a very bad thing in a school of over six hundred boys”, though what the number of boys had to do with the fact that there was no water he omitted to explain. The editor would express his regret in brackets, and things would go on as before.
The simple dichotomy of Big and Little Silver papers differentiate the family spirits from nonfamily spirits. The silver paper that circulates through the Hong Kong diaspora exhibits this simple distinction based on size of foil.

For a thousand years across the length and breadth of China and beyond, people have burned paper replicas of valuable things—most often money—for the spirits of deceased family members, ancestors, and myriads of demons and divinities. Although frequently denigrated as wasteful and vulgar and at times prohibited by governing elites, today this venerable custom is as popular as ever. Burning Money explores the cultural logic of this common practice while addressing larger anthropological questions concerning the nature of value. The heart of the work integrates Chinese and Western thought and analytics to develop a theoretical framework that the author calls a “materialist aesthetics.” This includes consideration of how the burning of paper money meshes with other customs in China and around the world. The work examines the custom in contemporary everyday life, its origins in folklore and history, as well as its role in common rituals, in the social formations of dynastic and modern times, and as a “sacrifice” in the act of consecrating the paper money before burning it. Here the author suggests a great divide between the modern means of cultural reproduction through ideology and reification, with its emphasis on nature and realism, and previous pre-capitalist means through ritual and mystification, with its emphasis on authenticity. The final chapters consider how the burning money custom has survived its encounter with the modern global system and internet technology. Innovative and original in its interpretation of a common ritual in Chinese popular religion, Burning Money will be welcomed by scholars and students of Chinese religion as well as comparative religion specialists and anthropologists interested in contemporary social theory.
