34 editions published between 1983 and 2018 in English and Japanese and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are women able to achieve anything they set their minds to? In How to Suppress Women's Writing, award-winning novelist and scholar Joanna Russ lays bare the subtle--and not so subtle--strategies that society uses to ignore, condemn, or belittle women who produce literature. As relevant today as when it was first published in 1983, this book has motivated generations of readers with its powerful feminist critique."--Publisher's description

The country you have never seen : essays and reviews by Joanna Russ( )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1959, at the age of 22, Joanna Russ published her first science fiction story, "Nor Custom Stale," in The Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy. In the years since, Russ has continued to write some popular, creative, and important novels and stories in science fiction. She was a central figure, along with contemporaries Ursula K. Le Guin and James Tiptree, in revolutionizing science fiction in the 1960s and 1970s. The Country You Have Never Seen gathers Joanna Russ's most important essays and reviews, revealing the vital part she played over the years in the never-ending conversation among writers and fans about the roles, boundaries, and potential of science fiction. Spanning her entire career, the collection shines a light on Russ's role in the growth of new wave science fiction and feminist science fiction, while at the same time providing fascinating insights into her own development as a writer."--Jacket

"Irene, a rebellious product of an American 1950s upbringing, has fled from a repressive and sexist society into a life of apparent equality and adventure as part of the elite Trans-Temporal Authority's cadre of travelers. Under the tutelage of Ernst, a friend/lover and teacher/father, Irene has achieved status and dignity. Irene and Ernst are assigned to a pseudo-Islamic world where they meet Zubedeyeh, a young girl whose creativity is being transformed into madness by the male chauvinistic society in which she lives. Vowing to rescue her, Irene unleashes a destructive cycle of violence."--Jacket

What are we fighting for? : sex, race, class, and the future of feminism by Joanna Russ( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In What Are We Fighting For? Joanna Russ argues strongly against the shift in contemporary feminist theory - from the direct political struggle of the 1960s and '70s to a depoliticized focus on women's psychology and personal relations. Irreverent and rich with insight, this book connects the feminist movement to struggles for racial and class equality as it traces the highlights and low points of feminist thinking in the past twenty-five years on a range of issues: the parallels between the current state of feminism and the setbacks in American and English feminism after World War I; why feminism must accept the leadership of women of color; and the necessity of socialist and feminist theory, despite traditional clashes between feminists and the Left

Picnic on paradise by Joanna Russ( Book )

17 editions published between 1968 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new kind of sci-fi heroine, the tough-as-nails Alyx, is introduced in this Nebula Award finalist that Poul Anderson called an "extraordinary" novel. Set in a semi-utopian world, Joanna Russ's groundbreaking debut novel is the story of Alyx, a female soldier, survival guide, and agent of the Trans-Temporal Authority. Displaced in time from her ancient Greece, Alyx is tasked with safely leading a group of pampered human vacationers-including some unconventional nuns and a detached teenager known as the Machine-across an uninhabited scenic terrain to a relief station. But the journey proves more challenging than anticipated as they confront one another's failings; the physical dangers of an icy, hostile wilderness; and Alyx's own personal demons. Long before the kick-ass heroines of current science fiction and fantasy, Russ unapologetically introduced readers to a short, strong, middle-aged (for her world/time) woman of twenty-six who knows how to survive but struggles with the emotional nuances of her charges and the confusion of her own mixed feelings. With iconic characters like Alyx, Russ "four decades ago helped deliver science fiction into the hands of the most alien creatures the genre had yet seen-women ... [and] helped inaugurate the now flourishing tradition of feminist science fiction" (The New York Times)
