"An essential guide to the life and works of Ayn Rand, this book chronicles and summarizes her writings, presents information about her national and global impact - and the response to it - and provides the most comprehensive bibliography published to date. Gladstein, who is not part of the Ayn Rand establishment or the Ayn Rand detractor camp, provides an expanded and revised edition of the Ayn Rand Companion, covering the complete Rand corpus. New materials about Rand's posthumous publications, the latest biographical information, and summaries of books and articles about Rand, published since her death, have been added."--Jacket

In this outstanding volume, Mimi Gladstein details Rand's belief in the moral supremacy of individualism over collectivism, highlighting her contribution to libertarian thought

Harry Potter and philosophy : if Aristotle ran Hogwarts( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Harry Potter and Philosophy, individual chapters look at such topics as life revealed in the Mirror of Erised; the ethics of magic; Moaning Myrtle, Nearly Headless Nick, and the relation of the mind to the brain; and the character of Hermione as a case of "sublimated feminism." Also examined in this collection are how Aristotle would have run a school for wizards; whether the Potter stories undermine religion and morality; how to tell good people from evil ones through the characters in these novels; and what dementors and boggarts can teach readers about happiness, fear, and the soul. --From publisher's description

The last supper of Chicano heroes : selected works of José Antonio Burciaga by José Antonio Burciaga( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely considered one of the most important voices in the Chicano literary canon, Burciaga was a pioneer who exposed inequities and cultural difficulties through humor, art, and deceptively simple prose. In this anthology and tribute, Mimi Gladstein and Daniel Chacon bring together dozens of remarkable examples of Burciaga's work. His work never demonstrates machismo or sexism, as he believed strongly that all Chicano voices are equally valuable. Best known for his books Weedee Peepo, Drink Cultura, and Undocumented Love/ Amor Indocumentado, Burciaga was also a poet, cartoonist, founding member of the comedy troupe Cultura Clash, and a talented muralist whose well-known work The Last Supper of Chicano Heroes became almost more famous than the man." "This first and only collection of Burciaga's work features thirty-eight illustrations and incorporates previously unpublished essays and drawings, including selections from his manuscript "The Temple Gang," a memoir he was writing at the time of his death. In addition, Gladstein and Chacon address Burciaga's importance to Chicano letters. This rich compendium is an important contribution not only to Chicano literature but also to the preservation of the creative, spiritual, and political voice of a talented and passionate man."--Jacket

Some Fictional Stereotypes of Women in 20Th Century American Fiction by Mimi Reisel Gladstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The three last American writers to win the Nobel Prize represent American male novelists who have been unable either to come to terms with the "Otherness" of the female or to draw convincing portraits of women. As a result, women in their works are presented as female stereotypes of one kind or another. Hemingway shows a split attitude toward women, depicting realistically only those women who are either destructive or docile. Faulkner presents women in a vicious manner, revealing a definite misogyny, and Steinbeck portrays very few women, giving those few subordinate roles while the plot usually centers on the relationships of men. Unfortunately, the influence of these novelists on other American writers has been strong. (Jm)
