Better red : the writing and resistance of Tillie Olsen and Meridel Le Sueur by Constance Coiner( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and French and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Olsen and Le Sueur challenge the bourgeois assumptions - often masked as classless and universal - of much canonical literature; and by creating working-class women's writing, they problematize the patriarchal nature of the Left and the masculinist assumptions of much proletarian literature, anticipating the concerns of "second wave" feminists a generation later
The family track : keeping your faculties while you mentor, nurture, teach, and serve( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 347 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 143 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
