Women of the Klan : racism and gender in the 1920s by Kathleen M Blee( Book )
15 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 1,977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ignorant. Brutal. Male. One of these stereotypes of the Ku Klux Klan offer a misleading picture. In "Women of the Klan," sociologist Kathleen Blee unveils an accurate portrait of a racist movement that appealed to ordinary people throughout the country. In so doing, she dismantles the popular notion that politically involved women are always inspired by pacifism, equality, and justice. "All the better people," a former Klanswoman assures us, were in the Klan. During the 1920s, perhaps half a million white native-born Protestant women joined the Women's Ku Klux Klan (WKKK). Like their male counterparts, Klanswomen held reactionary views on race, nationality, and religion. But their perspectives on gender roles were often progressive. The Klan publicly asserted that a women's order could safeguard women's suffrage and expand their other legal rights. Privately the WKKK was working to preserve white Protestant supremacy. Blee draws from extensive archival research and interviews with former Klan members and victims to underscore the complexity of extremist right-wing political movements. Issues of women's rights, she argues, do not fit comfortably into the standard dichotomies of "progressive" and "reactionary." These need to be replaced by a more complete understanding of how gender politics are related to the politics of race, religion, and class

The road to poverty : the making of wealth and hardship in Appalachia by Dwight B Billings( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dwight Billings and Kathleen Blee examine the making of wealth and inequality in persistently poor rural communities through the history of Clay Country, an especially poor section of the Eastern Kentucky mountains in Appalachia. Though this area has been the target of repeated antipoverty and economic development programs, few of these have had a lasting impact. The authors uncover the systemic problems and patterns of low income by tracing the economic, sociocultural, and political development of Clay County from early agricultural and industrial development in the nineteenth century to the advent of the timber and coal industry in the twentieth century."--Jacket

Democracy in the making : how activist groups form by Kathleen M Blee( Book )
14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With civic engagement commonly understood to be on the decline and traditional bases of community and means of engagement increasingly fractured, how do people become involved in collective civic action? How do activist groups form? What hampers the ability of these groups to invigorate political life, and what enables it? Kathleen Blee's groundbreaking new study provides a provocative answer: the early times matter. By following grassroots groups from their very beginnings, Blee traces how their sense of possibility shrinks over time as groups develop a shared sense of who they are that forec
