California on the breadlines : Dorothea Lange, Paul Taylor, and the making of a New Deal narrative by Jan Goggans( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the account of how Dorothea Lange (1895-1965), the Great Depression's most famous photographer, and Paul Taylor (1895-1984), her labor economist husband, forged a relationship that was private -- they both divorced spouses to be together -- collaborative, and richly productive. Lange and Taylor poured their considerable energies into the decade long project of documenting the plight of California's dispossessed, which in 1939 culminated in the publication of their landmark book, American Exodus: A Record of Human Erosion. The author blends biography, literature, and history to retrace the paths that brought Lange and Taylor together. She shows how American Exodus set forth a new way of understanding those in crisis during the economic disaster in California and ultimately informed the way we think about the Great Depression itself
The Pacific region( )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Penn Warren once wrote West is where we all plan to go some day, and indeed, images of the westernmost United States provide a mythic horizon to American cultural landscape. While the five states (California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawai'i) which touch Pacific waters do share commonalities within the history of westward expansion, the peoples who settled the region - and the indigenous peoples they encountered - have created spheres of culture that defy simple categorization. This wide-ranging reference volume explores the marvelously eclectic cultures that define the Pacific region. From the music and fashion of the Pacific northwest to the film industry and surfing subcultures of southern California, from the vast expanses of the Alaskan wilderness to the schisms between native and tourist culture in Hawa'ii, this unprecedented reference provides a detailed and fascinating look at American regionalism along the Pacific Rim
