There’s only one way Shelby and her sisters can describe their mother: she’s a sexpot. She collects men (and loans. spending money. and gifts of all kinds) from all over the country. Sure. she’s atypical. but she’s also more than a pretty face and nail polish — she’s confident and brave and lives lifeon her own terms. And her daughters adore her. and work together to keep the family grounded in a way their mother can’t. Then a late-night car crash shatters everything. including their mother’s arm and face.

Thirty Years of Treason
A chilling reenactment of the federal government’s anti-Communist investigationsThe testimony that Eric Bentley has gleaned for this book from the thirty-year record of the House Un-American Activities Committee focuses on HUAC’s treatment of artists. intellectuals. and performers. This highly dramatic and compelling collection of significant excerpts from the hearings shows with painful clarity how HUAC grew from a panel that investigated possible subversive activities in a „dignified” manner to a huge. unrelenting accusatory finger from which almost no one was safe. Thirty Years of Treason serves as a warning for the future and creates living history from the documentary record.

Second Line of Defense
In tracing the rise of the modern idea of the American „new woman.” Lynn Dumenil examines World War I’s surprising impact on women and. in turn. women’s impact on the war.Telling the stories of a diverse group of women. including African Americans. dissidents. pacifists. reformers. and industrial workers. Dumenil analyzes both the roadblocks and opportunities they faced. She richly explores the ways in which women helped the United States mobilize for the largest military endeavor in the nation’s history. Dumenil shows how women activists staked their claim to loyal citizenship by framing their war work as home-front volunteers. overseas nurses. factory laborers. and support personnel as „the second line of defense.” But in assessing the impact of these contributions on traditional gender roles. Dumenil finds that portrayals of these new modern women did not always match with real and enduring change.Extensively researched and drawing upon popular culture sources as well as archival material. The Second Line of Defense offers a comprehensive study of American women and war and frames them in the broader context of the social. cultural. and political history of the era.
