Homeward bound : American families in the Cold War era by Elaine Tyler May ( Book )
32 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When Homeward Bound first appeared in 1988, it altered the way we understood Cold War America. The post-World War II era was thought of as a time when Americans turned away from politics to enjoy the fruits of peace and prosperity, while their leaders remained preoccupied with the dangers of the Atomic Age. Elaine Tyler May demonstrated that the Cold War infused life on every level from the boardroom to the bedroom. This new edition includes up-to-date information and references, along with an epilogue that examines how the legacy of the Cold War has shaped America since September 11, 2001"--Provided by publisher
America and the pill : a history of promise, peril, and liberation by Elaine Tyler May ( Book )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1960, the FDA approved the contraceptive commonly known as "the pill." Advocates, developers, and manufacturers believed that the convenient new drug would put an end to unwanted pregnancy, ensure happy marriages, and even eradicate poverty. But as renowned historian Elaine Tyler May reveals in America and the Pill, it was women who embraced it and created change. They used the pill to challenge the authority of doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and lawmakers. They demonstrated that the pill was about much more than family planning--it offered women control over their bodies and their lives. From little-known accounts of the early years to personal testimonies from young women today, May illuminates what the pill did and did not achieve during its half century on the market.--Publisher description

Tell me true : memoir, history, and writing a life ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Balancing precariously between history and literature, memoir writers have finally found their place on the bookshelf. But increased notoriety brings intense scrutiny: memoirists are expected to create a narrative worthy of fiction while also saying true to the facts. Historians, too, handle tricky issues of writing from "real life," when imagination must fill gaps in the historical record." "In this landmark collection, Patricia Hampl and Elaine Tyler May have gathered fourteen original essays from award-winning memoirists and historians. They are all storytellers, wrestling with a fascinating gray area where memory intersects with history and where the necessities of narrative collide with mundane facts. And whether the record emerges from archival sources or from personal memory, these writers show how to make the leap to telling a good story, while also telling us true."--Jacket
