Better red the writing and resistance of Tillie Olsen and Meridel Le Sueur by Constance Coiner( )
17 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and French and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Better Red is an interdisciplinary study addressing the complicated intersection of American feminism and the political left as refracted in Tillie Olsen's and Meridel Le Sueur's lives and literary texts. The first book-length study to explore these feminist writers' ties to the American Communist Party, it contributes to a re-envisioning of 1930s U.S. Communism as well as to efforts to promote working-class writing as a legitimate category of literary analysis. At once loyal members of the male-dominated Communist Party and emerging feminists, Olsen and Le Sueur move both toward and away from Party tenets and attitudes - subverting through their writing formalist as well as orthodox Marxist literary categories
The family track : keeping your faculties while you mentor, nurture, teach, and serve ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At a time when the academy is an ever more demanding arbiter and shaper of the lives of those it employs, The Family Track: Keeping Your Faculties while You Mentor, Nurture, Teach, and Serve discusses the challenges and benefits of balancing a rewarding professional life with the competing needs to nurture children, care for aging parents, and engage in other personal relationships. Here academic women and men explore issues that include biological and tenure clocks, child care and eldercare, surrogate parenting of students, and increasing job demands. In telling stories about the quality of their lives, they express their hopes, anxieties, difficulties, and personal strategies for maintaining a delicate but achievable balance."--Jacket

The great midland by Alexander Saxton( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most compelling and sympathetic novels ever to portray the lives of American Communist activists, The Great Midland is a story of love and radical politics set in the years prior to World War II. It was published in 1948, just as cold war hysteria engulfed the United States; the embarrassed publisher subsequently tried to pretend the book didn't exist, and review media and bookstores ignored it. In an introduction written for this edition, Alexander Saxton reveals that he does not regret having been a Communist, even though his political convictions cost him job opportunities. The book vividly depicts the multiracial and multiethnic alliances that developed as Chicago railroad workers struggled to organize and the attempts of those thrown out of work to avoid eviction. A fascinating example of "cross-gendered writing," the novel presents some of its narrative through the complex consciousness of a young, first-generation Polish-American woman, Stephanie Koviak
