Cross-Addressing
Cross-Addressing (July 1996)
Resistance Literature and Cultural Borders

The Immigrant Left in the United States (April 1996)
Paul Buhle - Editor
Dan Georgakas - Editor

A transnational social history of immigrant-group involvement in radical activities in nineteenth- and twentieth-century America that provides missing links between the immigration experience, the neighborhood, the workplace, politics, and culture.

The Non-Jewish Origins of the Sephardic Jews
The Non-Jewish Origins of the Sephardic Jews (February 1996)
Paul Wexler - Author

The author uses linguistic, ethnographic, and historical evidence to support his theory that the origins of Sephardic Jews are predominantly Berber and Arab.

"This is a fascinating book based upon a wealth of diverse sources not usually brought together by scholars of Sephardic history. It is based upon the premise that Jewish languages such as Judeo-Arabic, Ladino, and Yiddish offer invaluable clues to ethnic origins.

Women Struggling For a New Life
Women Struggling For a New Life (January 1996)
The Role of Religion in the Cultural Passage From Korea to America
Ai Ra Kim - Author

What I like about this book is that it takes history seriously and makes an argument for how the socialization/enculturation of Korean women is influenced by the period of the Yi Dynasty. Kim weaves theory and empirical data together in a way that I found quite helpful. Moreover, she deals with class issues that are often overlooked in works such as these. The book is so well organized that I could hardly put it down once I started to read. Her conc...(Read More)

"What I like most about this book is that first it addresses an important issue: the role of ethnicity and culture in chronic pain.. Much of what Bates says also applies not only to chronic disease but virtually all types ...(Read More)

Youth, Poverty, and Education in Watts
Ann Diver-Stamnes - Author

This compelling examination (by a former high school teacher in Watts, Los Angeles) shows how poverty affects the lives of young people.

"Lives in the Balance literally explodes with images of youth culture within inner-city settings. Through observation and interview techniques, the author's close-up look at the effects of poverty on children's lives is staggering. Just the opportunity to hear 'insider' perspectives provides ...(Read More)
