Naked in the marketplace : the lives of George Sand by Benita Eisler( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed literary biographer Benita Eisler sheds new light on the many roles, triumphs, and losses that together constituted Sand's overwhelming presence. The author of nearly ninety novels, twenty-thousand letters and thousands of pages of autobiographical writings and political commentary, how did Sand also have the time to live? As Eisler reveals, hers seems like several lives - literary, political, amorous, and domestic. Earlier biographers have either cast Sand as a feminist icon or blurred her in the dynamic of "child of the century." Naked in the Marketplace captures Sand's essence - the outsized public persona and the inner woman, along with the unique and irreplaceable role she played in the history of her times."--Jacket
The Red Man's bones : George Catlin, artist and showman by Benita Eisler( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Catlin has been called the "first artist of the West," as none before him lived among and painted the Native American tribes of the Northern Plains. Catlin found his calling: to fix the image of a "vanishing race" before their "extermination"--his word. In the first six years of the 1830s, he created over six hundred portraits--unforgettable likenesses of individual chiefs, warriors, braves, squaws, and children belonging to more than thirty tribes living along the upper Missouri River. Political forces thwarted Catlin's ambition to sell what he called his "Indian Gallery" as a national collection, and in 1840 the artist began three decades of self-imposed exile abroad. For a time, he was the most celebrated American expatriate in London and Paris. But when he started to tour "live" troupes of Ojibwa and Iowa, his fortunes declined: he changed from artist to showman, and from advocate to exploiter. Tragedy and loss engulfed them. This humane portrait brings Catlin and his Indian subjects to life for our own time

Situations by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

5 editions published between 1965 and 1969 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first time Sartre's classic work on colonialism has been made available in English. First published in French in 1964, Colonialism and Neo-Colonialism is a classic critique of France's policies in Algeria in the 1950s and 1960s and inspired much subsequent writing on colonialism, post-colonialism, politics, and literature. It had an important impact on the conduct of the Algerian war itself, and the break up of the French colonial empire cannot be understood without reference to this key text. In this respect, it is also famous for its controversial call for the use of violence in achieving political ends." "Colonialism and Neo-Colonialism has Sartre's preface to Wretched of the Earth and has inspired many other influential French thinkers and critics of colonialism such as Jean-Francois Lyotard, Frantz Fanon, Pierre Bourdieu and Jacques Derrida."--Jacket
