Crime against nature by Minnie Bruce Pratt( Book )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designated as the prestigious 1989 Lamont Poetry Selection by the Academy of American Poets, and winner of the 1991 American Library Association Gay/Lesbian Book Award, Pratt's Crime Against Nature is a stunning achievement. This beautifully crafted sequence of poems takes its title from language in the statute under which the author could have been prosecuted as a lesbian if she had sought legal custody of her children. These are poems of despair, self-doubt, sexual bliss, sexual shame, exhilaration, rage, hope, victory. In Crime Against Nature, Pratt breathes new life into the words lesbian, poet, mother. Without contradiction or self-denial, she holds herself, her loves, and her children in a world of passion, of power being realized, of wholeness."--AUTHOR WEBSITE

Feminism and war : confronting US imperialism( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women across the globe are being dramatically affected by war as currently waged by the USA. But there has been little public space for dialogue about the complex relationship between feminism, women, and war. The editors of Feminism and War have brought together a diverse set of leading theorists and activists who examine the questions raised by ongoing American military initiatives, such as: a) What are the implications of an imperial nation/state laying claim to women's liberation? b) What is the relation between this claim and resulting American foreign policy and military action? c) Did American intervention and invasion in fact result in liberation for women in Afghanistan and Iraq? d) What multiple concepts are embedded in the phrase "women¹s liberation"? e) How are these connected to the specifics of religion, culture, history, economics, and nation within current conflicts? f) What is the relation between the lives of Afghan and Iraqi women before and after invasion, and that of women living in the US? g) How do women who define themselves as feminists resist or acquiesce to this nation/state claim in current theory and organizing? Feminism and War reveals and critically analyzes the complicated ways in which America uses gender, race, class, nationalism, imperialism to justify, legitimate, and continue war. Each chapter builds on the next to develop an anti-racist, feminist politics that places imperialist power, and forms of resistance to it, central to its comprehensive analysis." -- Publisher description
The dirt she ate : selected and new poems by Minnie Bruce Pratt( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suffused with pain and power Minnie Bruce Pratt's poetry is as evocative of the swamps and streets of the southern United States as it is of the emotional lives of those too often forced into the margins of society. Vivid, lush, and intensely honest, these poems capture the rough edges of the world and force us to pay attention. --University of Pittsburgh Press

Inside the money machine by Minnie Bruce Pratt( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inside the Money Machine is poetry for the "immense majority", for those who work for a living, out of the house or at home, from the laundromat to the classroom, from blue-collar construction sites to white-collar desk jobs. These fresh, gritty and passionate poems are about the people who survive and resist inside "the money machine" of 21st-century capitalism: those who've looked for work and not found it, who've held a job but wanted more out of life, who believe a better world is still possible. Inspired by the poetic prose of the Communist Manifesto, Inside the Money Machine draws its power from Pratt's own working life and grass-roots organizing, and the struggles of neighbors, co-workers, political activists and loved ones. Pratt writes from inside the failing money machine: "The problem is, the plan is not ours." In the tradition of the socially-engaged poetry of Muriel Rukeyser and Langston Hughes, Nazim Hikmet of Turkey and Pablo Neruda of Chile, these poems speak to the unfinished work of this moment in history, in a way that poetry seldom does. Inside the Money Machine urges: "Let us follow ourselves into a present not ruled by the past."
