Impounded : Dorothea Lange and the censored images of Japanese American internment by Dorothea Lange( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Censored by the U.S. Army, Dorothea Lange's unseen photographs are the photographic record of the Japanese American internment saga. This indelible work of visual and social history confirms Dorothea Lange's stature as one of the twentieth century's greatest American photographers. Presenting 119 images--the majority of which have never been published--this book evokes the horror of a community uprooted in the early 1940s and the stark reality of the internment camps. Nationally known historians Linda Gordon and Gary Okihiro narrate the saga of Japanese American internment: from life before Executive Order 9066 to the abrupt roundups and the marginal existence in the bleak, sandswept camps.--From publisher description
Feminism unfinished : a short, surprising history of American women's movements by Dorothy Sue Cobble( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this bold, revisionist history, three leading scholars of women's history provide the first concise history of American women's movements over the nearly hundred years since women gained the right to vote. They eschew the popular--though incomplete--narrative focusing on the 1960s and 1970s, and trace the world-changing social movement to the 1920s. This broader canvas allows for the struggles of all women, including working-class women, to come to the foreground. Among the many myths the book dispels is the notion that feminism was a movement of the largely white, highly educated, upper middle class. The authors vividly render the struggles of those women who organized rallies, demonstrations, and sit-ins--often working alongside civil rights demonstrators--to demand equal wages and better jobs, as well as the right to both sexual pleasure and reproductive control. The book also provides a counterpoint to the contemporary corporate-backed "lean-in" philosophy; the authors argue that this assumes that gains for a tiny elite will help all women. They demonstrate that, to the contrary, the gains women have made were created by working together for social change rather than by striving individually for personal success. While each new generation since 1920 has arrived in a world improved by the efforts of previous struggles, the movement is far from over. Progress is not a birthright but rather a vision that has been constructed, reconstructed, and fought for over and over again."--Publisher information

Dorothea Lange by Dorothea Lange( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) documented rural poverty for the federal Resettlement Administration and Farm Security Administration from 1935 to 1939. Her powerful images--from migrant workers in California fleeing the "dustbowl," to struggling Southern sharecroppers-- became icons of the era. She later photographed Japanese Americans in internment camps during World War II and traveled throughout Europe and Asia. This book presents 42 of the greatest images from throughout Lange's career, including some of her work done abroad. She possessed the ability, as she put it, to photograph "things as they are" and through this her photographs give us "more about the subjects than just the faces." It is no wonder that Edward Steichen called her the greatest documentary photographer in the United States. Linda Gordon contributes a new biographical essay and an image-by-image commentary to accompany a newly selected set of photographs
