Dean A. Sullivan is the editor of Early Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1825-1908 and Middle Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1900-1948, both available in Bison Books editions.

Among the many civil rights developments that shaped the social and political landscape of the 20th century, the gay rights movement has been unique in its origins, its goals, and its impact. For much of the century, gays and lesbians were not even recognized as a distinct cultural group, so that when they finally became galvanized following the Stonewall riot of the late 1960s, their struggle became a quest for individual and collective identity as much as one for civil rights. Through a compilation of news stories, editorials, essays, and reviews taken from The New York Times , The Gay Rights Movement reveals much about the journey of homosexuals from isolated, criminalized pariahs to members of a distinct and outspoken community. This unique reference book includes more than 500 articles and 100 illustrations that chronicle the legal, political, social, cultural, and personal evolution of gay rights throughout the 20th century and up to the present time.

Rather than have the movement be interpreted by others, this text permits the original work of radical feminists to speak for itself. Comprised of pivotal documents written by US radical feminists in the 1960s and 70s, the book combines both unpublished and previously published manifestos, position papers, minutes of meetings, and newsletters essential to an understanding of radical feminism. The collection is organized around the key issues of sex and sexuality, race, children, lesbianism, separatism, and class. Barbara Crow rescues the groundbreaking original work of such groups as The Furies, Redstockings, Cell 16, and the Women's Liberation Movement. Contributors include Kate Millet, Susan Brownmiller, Shulamith Firestone, Rosalyn Baxandall, Toni Morrison, Ellen Willis, Anne Koett, and Vivian Gornick.

A compendium of 103 public statements by Ernest Hemingway celebrating Ernest Hemingway. Ernest Hemingway was famous for being famous. He assiduously cultivated different and sometimes divergent personae - sportsman, soldier, aesthetician, patriot, drinker, womanizer, intellectual, anti-intellectual, sage, brawler, world traveler, war correspondent, big-game hunter, and even author - each chosen to foster his place in the American cultural consciousness and support the sales of his books. In every role he projected the insider's air of authority and expertise that was presumed credible, even when not wholly deserved. His success in these self-legendizing efforts to couple nonliterary celebrity with literary stature is evident in his continued fame among those familiar and unfamiliar with his books. "Hemingway and the Mechanism of Fame" assembles Hemingway's public writings about himself, all framed as documents of support for or criticism of other people and other products. Comprising fifty-four public statements and letters; twenty introductions, forewords, and prefaces; and twenty-nine book blurbs, reviews, and product endorsements, the collection chronicles the means by which Hemingway advanced his own standing through these literary and extraliterary writings. From his commercial endorsements for the Parker 51 pen and Ballantine ale to his Nobel Prize acceptance statement and commentary on President Kennedy's inauguration, Hemingway shows himself to be an expert marketing strategist, infusing each piece with thoughtfully crafted autobiography designed to engage his public and promote his image. Arranged in chronological order and spanning more than forty years, the selections in this volume map the development of Hemingway's most complex, studied, criticized, parodied, and celebrated fictional character: Ernest Hemingway himself.

Amy Jacques Garvey was one of the most prolific women within any Black nationalist group, yet she has largely only been discussed in relationship to her husband, Black nationalist Marcus Garvey, and as the editor of the Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey. Much of her writing has remained unavailable to the public, lost to the archives, until now. Amy Jacques Garvey: Selected Writings from the Negro World, 1923-1928 seeks to fill this void by making her writings in the Negro World widely available for the first time. Editor Louis J. Parascandola compiles a wide swath of Jacques Garvey's work in this groundbreaking collection. Born and educated in Jamaica, Jacques Garvey's atypical opportunity to receive education at elite Jamaican schools, along with her later jobs as a clerk and secretary, prepared her for future positions as journalist and political administrator. She also possessed the rhetorical skills and independent thinking that would help her challenge Marcus Garvey and the other men in Garvey's organization, the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA). In allowing Jacques Garvey's work to largely speak for itself, the volume reveals that she concerned herself with a diversity of important and often controversial political and social issues rather than the stereotypical domestic matters expected of most woman's pages of the time period. By examining her selected writings in the Negro World, this volume affords its readers a better understanding of Jacques Garvey's powerful contribution not only to Garveyism but also to the growth of Black radical thought, anti-imperialist ideology, and the rights of third-world women. This timely study sheds new light on Jacques Garvey's pivotal role as a Black female writer and thinker during the twenties.
