301 ROSENOW, MICHAEL K. Death And Dying In The Working Class, 1865-1920.
University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The inequalities surrounding the great equalizer The post-Civil War Industrial Age brought fundamental changes to the economy and its workers, forcing Americans to reassess the meaning of life and death. This illuminating study of working-class rituals of dying and the politics of death explores how Americans struggled to understand the broader forces transforming their worlds. Michael K. Rosenow investigates working people's beliefs and practices in this important era by homing in on three overarching questions: How did workers, their families, and their communities experience death? Did various identities of class, race, gender, and religion coalesce to form distinct cultures of death for working people? And how did people's attitudes toward death reflect notions of who mattered in U.S. society? Drawing from an eclectic array of sources ranging from Andrew Carnegie to grave markers in Chicago's potter's field, Rosenow portrays the complex political, social, and cultural relationships that fueled the industrial ascent of the United States. Michael K. Rosenow is an assistant professor at the University of Central Arkansas. "Through portraits of industrial accidents, political funerals, and burial rituals, this compelling reinterpretation of working-class culture and the making of labor solidarity highlights how bodies in their gendered, class, and ethnic valences matter--in death as well as life. Michael Rosenow captures the hazards of work in coal and steel in a world where cults of manliness and productivity proved deadly, but resistance and accommodation took multiple forms."--Eileen Boris, Hull Professor of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara "Engaging, thoughtful, and very readable . . . It adds to our knowledge of how Americans responded to the changes brought by industrialization in the second half of the nineteenth century."--Robert V. Wells, author of Life Flows On in Endless Song: Folk Songs and American History "Rosenow usefully extends a now-rich literature on American memorial practices to the northern industrial working classes from the Civil War to World War I. . . . This pioneering study deserves wide attention."--Leon Fink, author of Sweatshops at Sea: Merchant Seamen in the World's First Globalized Industry, from 1812 to the Present

317 SARTRE, JEAN-PAUL; BECKER, GEORGE J. (TRANSLATED BY). Anti-semite And Jew.

A brilliant portrait of both anti-Semite and Jew, written by a non-Jew, from a non-Jewish point of view. Nothing of the anti-Semite, in any of his subtle forms, escapes Sartre's sharp eye and sharper pen. The Jew, too, is seen with a penetrating eye, and the whole problem of his relationship to the Gentile is examined in a concrete, living way, rather than in the usual sociological abstractions. Thought by many to be Sartre's most distinguished performance.
