More than things by Margaret Randall( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More Than Things is a collection of essays on a variety of political, cultural, and literary issues, all linked by Margaret Randall's attention to power: its use, misuse, and impact on how we live our lives. There are texts on sex, fashion, food, LGBT rights, automobiles, forgiving, women's self-image, writing, books, and more. Two of the essays provide glimpses into present-day Cuba and Tunisia. She reflects on her family; her romantic partners; and the revolutionaries, writers, artists, and activists she has known personally and admired: Roque Dalton, Meridel LeSueur, and Haydée Sa

Sandino's daughters : testimonies of Nicaraguan women in struggle by Margaret Randall( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 1995 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1981 in the wake of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) revolution in Nicaragua, Sandino's Daughters can now be seen not as a triumph of revolutionary ideals, but as a triumph of the spirit. Through a series of interviews with participants at all levels in the resistance, Margaret Randall recounts the lives of ordinary women who became pillars of strength and perseverance during their decades-long involvement in the Sandinista struggle against the Somoza dictatorship. Believing firmly that women's liberation was inextricably linked with national liberation, many of these women were in the vanguard of the movement inspired by Augusto Sandino. At the peak of revolutionary activity, women from all classes and backgrounds comprised 30 percent of the Sandinista army. For many of these women, politics became one with the personal. Hindsight perhaps offers the greatest irony of the women's alliance with the FSLN in the fact that it was a woman, Violeta Chamorro, who challenged and defeated the Sandinistas in the free elections of 1990. Though lured by the revolutionary quixotism of a promise that lasted slightly more than a decade, the women of Sandino's Daughters will stand as a monument to all those who yearn to be free
Sandino's daughters revisited : feminism in Nicaragua by Margaret Randall( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A completely new and different book from her earlier Sandino's Daughters. The core is a dozen lengthy interviews with feminist women (all but one), hence not randomly drawn from Nicaraguan society. Randall opens the volume with a useful, wide-ranging interpretative survey of history, politics, and the social situation of women. One observation that sticks: women who most resembled men in their conduct rose highest under Sandinista rule"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57

Only the road = Solo el camino : eight decades of Cuban poetry by Margaret Randall( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring the work of more than fifty poets writing across the last eight decades, Only the Road / Solo el Camino is the most complete bilingual anthology of Cuban poetry available to an English readership. It is distinguished by its stylistic breadth and the diversity of its contributors, who come from throughout Cuba and its diaspora and include luminaries, lesser-known voices, and several Afro-Cuban and LGBTQ poets. Nearly half of the poets in the collection are women. Only the Road paints a full and dynamic picture of modern Cuban life and poetry, highlighting their unique features and idiosyncrasies, the changes across generations, and the ebbs and flows between repression and freedom following the Revolution. Poet Margaret Randall, who translated each poem, contributes extensive biographical notes for each poet and a historical introduction to twentieth-century Cuban poetry."--Publisher's description

Che on my mind by Margaret Randall( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Che on My Mind "is an impressionistic look at the life, death, and legacy of Che Guevara by the renowned feminist poet and activist Margaret Randall, who participated in the Mexican student movement of 1968 and was eventually forced to leave the country. She arrived in Cuba in 1969, less than two years after Che's death, and lived there until 1980. She became friends with several of Che's family members, friends, and compatriots. In "Che on My Mind" she reflects on his relationships with his family and fellow insurgents, including Fidel Castro. She is deeply admiring of Che's integrity and charisma and frank about what she sees as his strategic errors. Randall concludes by reflecting on the inspiration and lessons that Che's struggles might offer early twenty-first-century social justice activists and freedom fighters
Haydée Santamaría, Cuban revolutionary : she led by transgression by Margaret Randall( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking part in the Cuban Revolution's first armed action in 1953, enduring the torture and killings of her brother and fiancé, assuming a leadership role in the underground movement, and smuggling weapons into Cuba, Haydée Santamaría was the only woman to participate in every phase of the Revolution. Virtually unknown outside of Cuba, Santamaría was a trusted member of Fidel Castro's inner circle and friend of Che Guevara. Following the Revolution's victory Santamaría founded and ran the cultural and arts institution Casa de las Americas, which attracted cutting-edge artists, exposed Cubans to some of the world's greatest creative minds, and protected queer, black, and feminist artists from state repression. Santamaría's suicide in 1980 caused confusion and discomfort throughout Cuba; despite her commitment to the Revolution, communist orthodoxy's disapproval of suicide prevented the Cuban leadership from mourning and celebrating her in the Plaza of the Revolution. In this impressionistic portrait of her friend Haydée Santamaría, Margaret Randall shows how one woman can help change the course of history. -- Provided by publisher
The price you pay : the hidden cost of women's relationship to money by Margaret Randall( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Money determines the way we live our lives. In a patriarchal society women experience money as one more element of control: often abusive, sometimes paralyzing. In The Price You Pay, Margaret Randall interviews women from a wide range of economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds to reveal the complex role money plays in their lives. The Price You Pay is for the wives who hide money from their husbands, single women or lesbians who struggle against discriminating financial practices, and daughters of immigrants who remember what money meant in the transition between worlds. In short, The Price You Pay should be read by anyone who has ever thought about the power of money in our lives

Christians in the Nicaraguan revolution by Margaret Randall( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The controversy within the Catholic Church over the concept of liberation theology raises the questions: is there room in Christian philosophy for a socialist society? And is there a place in a socialist society? Nicaragua's recent experience, says Margaret Randall, shows the answer to these questions to be "yes". The dominant role Christianity played in the Nicaraguan revolution both before and after the 1979 overthrow of the Somoza regime shows that the concrete goals shared by the two ideologies, Christianity and Marxism, outweigh their theoretical contradictions. The main part of Christians in the Nicaraguan Revolution consists of long narratives by members of two Christian base communities with key roles in the Nicaraguan revolution. Solentiname is the retreat founded in the mid-sixties by Father Ernesto Cardenal -- now Nicaragua's minister of culture -- on a remote island in Lake Nicaragua. El Riguero is an urban community, founded in 1972 by father Uriel Molina in a Managua barrio. Christians in the Nicaraguan Revolution features the voices of "ordinary" believers as well as those of well-known religious and political leaders"--Back cover
