On Strike and on Film

Mexican American Families and Blacklisted Filmmakers in Cold War America

Author: Ellen R. Baker

In 1950, Mexican American miners went on strike for fair working conditions in Hanover, New Mexico. When an injunction prohibited miners from picketing, their wives took over the picket lines--an unprecedented act that disrupted mining families but ultimately ensured the strikers' victory in 1952. In On Strike and on Film, Ellen Baker examines the building of a leftist union that linked class justice to ethnic equality. She shows how women's participation in union activities paved the way for their taking over the picket lines and thereby forcing their husbands, and the union, to face troubling questions about gender equality. Baker also explores the collaboration between mining families and blacklisted Hollywood filmmakers that resulted in the controversial 1954 film Salt of the Earth. She shows how this worker-artist alliance gave the mining families a unique chance to clarify the meanings of the strike in their own lives and allowed the filmmakers to create a progressive alternative to Hollywood productions. An inspiring story of working-class solidarity, Mexican American dignity, and women's liberation, Salt of the Earth was itself blacklisted by powerful anticommunists, yet the movie has endured as a vital contribution to American cinema.

Two distinct communities which share equally vibrant histories, the twin cities of St. Joseph and Benton Harbor possess a rich heritage rooted in agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, and tourism. Through more than 200 photographs, this book documents the cities' development from the time when pioneers first struggled to create a community in the wilderness. It pays tribute to the men and women who labored to establish farms and industries, and celebrates the delightful beaches and amusement parks-such as the House of David and Silver Beach-that have brought joy to generations of residents and visitors alike.

Wenn ungehorsame Kinder sich in gute verwandeln...: Der italienische Klassiker ist in einer grossformatigen, modern illustrierten und fest gebundenen Ausgabe neu verlegt worden. In der Übersetzung von Hubert Bausch erzählt die Geschichte Entwicklung und Abenteuer vom blossen Stück Holz über den unwilligen und abenteuerlichen Bengel mit der zeitweise langen Nase bis hin zum rücksichtsvollen Jungen, der seinem Vater liebevoll zugetan ist. Es ist ein Abenteuer- und Entwicklungsroman für Kinder, eine Gedankenreise hinaus in die unbekannte Welt und ins wechselhafte Leben; mit Erziehungsabsichten durchaus. Am besten lassen sich die 36 Kapitel in ihrer Weitläufigkeit wohl vorgelesen geniessen. Die originell collagierten Illustrationen von Sara Fanelli stehen der etwas surrealen Welt Pinocchios bestens zu Gesicht. Ab 6 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer.
