Speaking history : oral histories of the American past, 1865-present by Susan H Armitage( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of selected oral histories features the voices of Americans who lived through some of the most critical events shaping the nation's history since the Civil War. This first-of-a-kind compilation allows students, scholars, and other readers to explore the connections and disconnections between individual stories and broader historical themes by understanding how history plays out in individual lives. Comprised of oral history interviews drawn from some of the country's major collections, Speaking History presents a remarkable array of diverse American voices. Included here are fascinating, often moving accounts of everything from slavery to protest movements, world wars to work and leisure, forming a detailed mosaic of American life in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Supplemented with valuable historical context, this book demonstrates how oral history interviews can bring the past to life by linking individual experiences to larger historical narratives
Mining women : gender in the development of a global industry, 1670 to 2005 by Laurie Mercier( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mining Women is the first work that explores gender relations and women's work and activism in different parts of the world and links each of these not only to cultural and domestic arrangements but also to an emerging colonial, industrial, and capitalist system from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. This global, case study/comparative approach reveals that despite the tremendous variation in mining practices and national experiences, women have challenged the constraints of gender definitions on their lives, work, and militancy."--Jacket

Social history of the United States by Brian Greenberg( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This ten-volume encyclopedia explores the social history of 20th-century America in rich, authoritative detail, decade by decade, through the eyes of its everyday citizens. Spanning ten volumes and featuring the work of some of the foremost social historians working today, Social History of the United States bridges the gap between 20th-century history as it played out on the grand stage and history as it affected -- and was affected by -- citizens at the grassroots level. Covering each decade in a separate volume, this exhaustive work draws on the most compelling scholarship to identify important themes and institutions, explore daily life and working conditions across the economic spectrum, and examine all aspects of the American experience from a citizen's-eye view. - Publisher
