Worlds of pain : life in the working-class family by Lillian B Rubin( Book )

27 editions published between 1969 and 1993 in English and held by 1,701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lillian Breslow Rubin's Worlds of Pain: Life in the Working-Class Family is a rare find among studies of working- class families. Rubin combines a sensitivity to her own working-class background with her training as a sociologist and therapist to understand, interpret, and analyze the sources of pain and repressed anger among this frequently neglected and misunderstood segment of the population--the white working class. In her analysis of their family lives, Rubin goes beyond the current fad of focusing solely on the situation of women to encompass a sensitivity to the world of working-class men as well. Rubin analyzes the family lives of these women and men with the precision and understanding that only an intellectual from the working class could have. The book stirred many memories from my own background. After finishing some chapters, I found tears running down my cheeks. To understand this pain is to understand the lives of white working-class families in the United States today. -- From https://www.jstor.org (August 29, 2016)

Families on the fault line : America's working class speaks about the family, the economy, race, and ethnicity by Lillian B Rubin( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Dutch and held by 1,223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the sensitivity and compassion for which her work is renowned, she shows us how much all working-class families - white, black, Latino, or Asian - have in common and how valiantly they cope with the many challenges in their lives. And in a brilliant sociological and psychological analysis, she also explores how the failing economy has helped to create seemingly unbridgeable divisions among them. In this context, she explains how the social and economic realities of working-class family life form the backdrop against which racial and ethnic tensions have escalated to their present precarious place on the fault line
Busing and backlash; white against white in a California school district by Lillian B Rubin( Book )

14 editions published between 1972 and 1980 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After several years of pressure from black community organizations and their white allies, in December 1968 the Richmond Unified School District school board set in motion plans to integrate all its elementary schools. The plans necessitated some two-way busing. Four months later the proponents of that plan were soundly defeated by the electorate, and the newly elected school board, composed entirely of anti-busing conservatives rescinded the plan in favor of a voluntary open enrollment scheme. Even while acknowledging that America's racial fears and hostilities stood at the center of the controversy, the outcome was puzzling. Specifically, answers were sought to such questions as: What were the weaknesses in the moderate-liberal coalition that facilitated such a complete ouster from power? Where were the critical junctures at which they either acted incorrectly or failed to act at all, thereby contributing to their failure to retain power and to integrate the elementary schools in the district? What were the ambivalences and strains, the structural and ideological sources of their failure? On the other side: what were the strengths that enabled the conservatives to mobilize what formerly had been a relatively apathetic constituency? What accounted for the politics of rage so evident in this struggle? What, in substance, gave the "silent" majority its voice? (Author/JM)
