Tender comrades : a backstory of the Hollywood blacklist by Patrick McGilligan( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October of 1947, The House Un-American Activities Committee launched hearings in Washington, D.C., to investigate Communist influence in the motion picture industry. Writers, actors, directors, and other industry figures were called before HUAC and commanded to "name names": to save themselves by betraying their colleagues. In what amounted to a signal instance of cultural repression, those who defied HUAC were shouted down - and marked down on lists that ruined their lives and careers. And they have never been given their full chance to speak ... until now. In the pages of Tender Comrades, thirty-six blacklist survivors tell their life stories. Together their voices form a unique collection of Hollywood profiles in courage. For years before 1947, a close-knit left-wing and liberal community had thrived in Hollywood, taking stands on controversial issues and causes while making some of the finest films of the 1930s and 1940s. Hardly a circle bent on revolt, these individuals were, rather, committed to integrating their humanism into their lives and work. When they were blacklisted and driven from the industry - some into false identities, some out of the country altogether - the world of film suffered an immeasurable loss

21 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hidden in plain sight completes Buhle and Wagner's trilogy on the Hollywood blacklist. When the blacklistees were hounded out of Hollywood, some left for television where many worked on children's shows like "Rocky and Bullwinkle." A number wrote adult sitcoms such as The Donna Reed Show, and M*A*S*H while some of them ultimately returned to Hollywood and made great films such as Norma Rae, and Midnight Cowboy. This is a thoughtful look at the aftermath of the horror that was the McCarthy period from two expert historians of the blacklist period

Marxism in the United States : remapping the history of the American Left by Paul Buhle( Book )

32 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A crown jewel of New Left historiography, this overview of U.S. Marxism was hailed on its first publication for its nuanced storytelling, balance and incredible sweep. Brimming over with archival finds and buoyed by the recollections of witnesses and participants in the radical movements of decades past, Marxism in the United States includes fascinating accounts of the immigrant socialism of the nineteenth century, the formation of the CPUSA in the wake of the Bolshevik Revolution, the rise of American communism and of the hugely influential Popular Front in the 1920s and ʹ30s, the crisis and split of the ʹ50s, and the revival of Marxism in the ʹ60s and ʹ70s. -- Publisher description

Students for a Democratic Society : a graphic history by Harvey Pekar( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The History of SDS as You've Never Seen It Before. In 1962 at a United Auto Workers' camp in Michigan, Students for a Democratic Society held its historic convention and prepared the famous Port Huron Statement, drafted by Tom Hayden. This statement, criticizing the U.S. government's failure to pursue international peace or address domestic inequality, became the organization's manifesto. Its last convention was held in 1969 in Chicago, where, collapsing under the weight of its notoriety and popularity, it shattered into myriad factions. Through brilliant art and they-were-there dialogue, famed graphic novelist Harvey Pekar, gifted artist Gary Dumm, and renowned historian Paul Buhle illustrate the tumultuous decade that first defined and then was defined by the men and women who gathered under the SDS banner. Students for a Democratic Society: A Graphic History captures the idealism and activism that drove a generation of young Americans to believe that even one person's actions can help transform the world
The art of Harvey Kurtzman : the mad genius of comics by Denis Kitchen( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creator of MAD and Playboy's "Little Annie Fanny" was called "one of the most important figures in postwar America" by the New York Times. Harvey Kurtzman's groundbreaking "realistic" war comics of the early '50s and various satirical publications (MAD, Trump, Humbug, and Help!) had an immense impact on popular culture, inspiring a generation of underground cartoonists. Without Kurtzman, it's unlikely we'd have had Airplane, SNL, or National Lampoon. Kurtzman also discovered Robert Crumb and gave Gloria Steinem her first job in publishing when he hired her as his assistant. Terry Gilliam also started at his side, met an unknown John Cleese in the process, and the genesis of Monty Python was formed. This definitive book includes hundreds of never-before-seen illustrations, paintings, pencil sketches, newly discovered lost E.C. Comics layouts, color compositions, illustrated correspondence, and vintage photos from the rich Kurtzman archives.--From publisher description
The new left revisited by John Campbell McMillian( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting with the premise that it is possible to say something significantly new about the 1960s and the New Left, the contributors to this volume trace the social roots, the various paths, and the legacies of the movement that set out to change America. As members of a younger generation of scholars, none of them (apart from Paul Buhle) has first-hand knowledge of the era. Their perspective as non-participants enables them to offer fresh interpretations of the regional and ideological differences that have been obscured in the standard histories and memoirs of the period. Reflecting the diversity of goals, the clashes of opinions, and the tumult of the time, these essays will engage seasoned scholars as well as students of the '60s. Author note: John McMillian teaches History and Literature at Harvard University and is co-editor with Timothy Patrick McCarthy, of The Radical Reader: A Documentary Anthology of American Radical History (forthcoming). Paul Buhle is Lecturer in the American civilization department at Brown University. His most recent book (co-authored with Dave Wagner) is Radical Hollywood: The Untold Story Behind America's Favorite Movies. He writes for The Nation, The Guardian, and The Times Higher Education Supplement, among other publications

The immigrant left in the United States( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book investigates the role immigrant radicals have played in U.S. society from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. A valuable contribution to the history of the American Left, it makes use of a wealth of material from immigrants whose everyday speech and intellectual discourse were not in the English language. The social-history scholarship that informs the essays is innovative in method and purpose. Articles on Mexican-American, German, Jewish, Polish, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Italian, Ukrainian, Greek, Arab, and Haitian immigrants supply missing conceptual links between the immigration experience, the neighborhood and the workplace, and political, labor, and cultural institutions. Taken together, they offer a model study in transnational history, one the most important new fields of historical inquiry
