Karen Offen offers a magisterial reconstruction and analysis of the debates around relations between women and men, how they are constructed, and how they should be organized, that raged in France and its French-speaking neighbors from 1870 to 1920. The 'woman question' encompassed subjects from maternity and childbirth, and the upbringing and education of girls to marriage practices and property law, the organization of households, the distribution of work inside and outside the household, intimate sexual relations, religious beliefs and moral concerns, government-sanctioned prostitution, economic and political citizenship, and the politics of population growth. The book shows how the expansion of economic opportunities for women and the drop in the birth rate further exacerbated the debates over their status, roles, and possibilities. With the onset of the First World War, these debates were temporarily placed on hold, but they would be revived by 1916 and gain momentum during France's post-war recovery.

A timely new edition of a pioneering work in Latino literature, National Book Award nominee Gary Soto's first collection (originally published in 1977) draws on California's fertile San Joaquin Valley, the people, the place, and the hard agricultural work done there by immigrants. In these poems, joy and anger, violence and hope are placed in both the metaphorical and very real circumstances of the Valley. Rooted in personal experiences-of the poet as a young man, his friends, family, and neighbors-the poems are spare but expansive, with Soto's voice as important as ever. This welcome new edition has been expanded with a crucial selection of complementary poems (some previously unpublished) and a new introduction by the author.

Prizewinning and bestselling writer Luis Urrea has written his Mexican coming-to-America story, his masterpiece. Destined to sit alongside other classic immigrant novels, THE HOUSE OF BROKEN ANGELS is a sprawling and epic family saga helmed by patriarch Big Angel that takes place over the weekend of the final birthday party he is throwing for himself at home in San Diego, occasioned by his imminent death at the hands of that familiar killer cancer. But when Big Angel's mother Mama America passes as the party nears, he must plan her funeral as well, and so decides to throw two family affairs in one weekend: a farewell double-header. Among the attendants is his namesake Little Angel, who flies in from Seattle to pay his respects and say his goodbyes, and comes face to face with the people with whom he shared a parent but as the weekend proceeds to remind him, not a life. This is the story of Big Angel and Little Angel, of what it means to be a Mexican in America, to have lived two lives across one border - and about the ravaging power of death to shore up the bits of life you have forgotten, whether by choice or not. A finely wrought portrait of this deeply complex family, THE HOUSE OF BROKEN ANGELS is purely Urrean: teeming with brilliance and humor, authentic at every turn - this novel cements Urrea as a master truth-teller of the Mexican-American experience.
