Eleanor Marx by Yvonne Kapp( Book )

51 editions published between 1972 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New edition of Yvonne Kapp's much-celebrated biography Eleanor Marx is one of the most tragically overlooked feminists intellectuals in history. To the extent that she is known, interest in her is often limited to her proximity to Karl Marx, her father. But not only did she edit, translate, transcribe and collaborate with him, she also spent her extraordinary life putting his ideas into practice as a labour organizer and radical. This highly acclaimed biography brilliantly succeeds in capturing Eleanor's spirit, from a lively child, opining on the world's affairs, to the new woman, aspiring to the stage, earning her living as a free intellectual, and helping to lead England's unskilled workers at the height of the new unionism; being always more than, yet at the same time inescapably, Karl Marx's daughter. It is also, inevitably, an unrivalled biography of the Marx household in Victorian London, of the Marx circle, and of Friedrich Engels, the family's extraordinary mentor. Eleanor's biography appeared first at the height of feminist organizing, and does so again in this single-volume edition as the interest in feminism resurges, as a crucial corrective to a narrative that puts feminists and marxists on opposing sides of radical history

British policy and the refugees, 1933-1941 by Yvonne Kapp( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the summer of 1940, when much of Europe had fallen under German domination, the British authorities instigated a harsh programme of internment or deportation of the large numbers of people fleeing Nazi oppression. This volume, written the same year - at a time when the role and the fate of the refugees was a burning issue - is a devastating critique of the government policies of the day. As committed Communists the two women authors, like the refugees they were championing, had been badly affected by the hardening in British official policy; they were dismissed from leading positions they held in the government-sponsored Czech Refugee Trust Fund in an 'apparently isolated instance of victimisation' which 'was subsequently seen to be merely a prelude to the wholesale arrest of the refugees themselves'. This work contrasts the official attitudes towards foreigners and Jews with the generosity of the general public, and makes a distinct contribution, firstly to the literature of internment and deportation, and secondly to the study of German-speaking refugees in Britain in the years leading up to mass alien internment."--BOOK JACKET

The collected short stories of Bertolt Brecht by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone knows that Bertolt Brecht was one of the great 20th-century innovators in theatre - the literary-theatrical equivalent of a Picasso or Stravinsky - and Germany's greatest poet of the last century, but the playwright was also a dazzling writer of stories. Storytelling permeated his art as a dramatist; fundamentally in his plays he was a storyteller. This volume collects the complete short stories written by Brecht, including the prize-winning 'The Monster', and the fragmentary memoir ghost-written by Brecht, 'Life Story of the boxer Samson-Körner'. Brecht scholar Marc Silberman provides an introduction and editorial notes. Fans of Brecht will find in the 37 stories assembled here the same directness, lack of affectation, and wry humour that characterise his plays. Every lover of short stories will discover an unexpected trove of pleasure in this "mine for short-story addicts" (Observer)
