An international history of radical movements and their convergences during the Mexican Revolution The Mexican Revolution was a global event that catalyzed international radicals in unexpected sites and struggles. Tracing the paths of figures like Black American artist Elizabeth Catlett, Indian anti-colonial activist M.N. Roy, Mexican revolutionary leader Ricardo Flores Magón, Okinawan migrant organizer Paul Shinsei Kōchi, and Soviet feminist Alexandra Kollontai, Arise! reveals how activists around the world found inspiration and solidarity in revolutionary Mexico. From art collectives and farm worker strikes to prison "universities," Arise! reconstructs how this era's radical organizers found new ways to fight global capitalism. Drawing on prison records, surveillance data, memoirs, oral histories, visual art, and a rich trove of untapped sources, Christina Heatherton considers how disparate revolutionary traditions merged in unanticipated alliances. From her unique vantage point, she charts the remarkable impact of the Mexican Revolution as radicals in this critical era forged an anti-racist internationalism from below.

Feminist writing has emerged in recent years as a major influence of twentieth-century European literature. Textual Liberation, first published in 1991, provides a timely and wide-ranging survey of twentieth-century feminist writing in Europe, presenting texts from a number of countries and highlighting some of the transnational parallels and contrasts. The contributors emphasize the wider contexts- political, social, economic- in which the texts were produced. They cover feminist literature in Britain, Scandinavia, Germany, Eastern Europe, Russia, France, Spain, Italy, and Turkey, and consider a range of genres, including the novel, poetry, drama, essays, and journalism. Each chapter contains an extensive bibliography with special emphasis on material available in English. A stimulating introduction to the development of European feminist writing, Textual Liberation will be an invaluable resource for students of women’s literature, women’s studies, and feminism.

This book provides a much needed critical perspective for an analysis of the works of some of the major classical and contemporary social theorists of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Designed to stimulate interest in the beginning sociology student to examine the critical issues raised by these theorists, the book is intended as a text in introductory sociology and social theory courses to further familiarize students with the perspectives of some of the most prominent social theorists of our time. The twenty-one chapters that make up this book were designed to be brief, concise, and to the point, expressed whenever possible in the words of the theorists themselves, so that the central ideas can be presented in their original form. In this sense, this brief introductory theory book serves as an initial stepping-stone to more in-depth analysis of theorists usually covered in more advanced social theory texts.
