Gerda Lerners Autobiographie gewährt einen einzigartigen Einblick in das Leben der renommierten Historikerin und Pionierin der Frauenbewegung. Lebendig wird alles, was sie selbst lebte: Von der Wiener Bourgeoisie über die Auswanderung nach Amerika bis zu ihrer beruflichen Laufbahn als eine der feministischen Leitfiguren des 20. Jahrhunderts. Wien in den 20er Jahren. Gerda Kronstein wächst als Tochter einer Künstlerin und eines Apothekers in der höheren Wiener Gesellschaft auf, umgeben von Kindermädchen, Salons und Kammermusik. Schon als Kind und Jugendliche fällt sie durch ihre rebellische Art auf, die sie später in politische Aktivität umwandelt: Nie ein Blatt vor dem Mund und von der marxistischen Idee beeindruckt, bietet die junge Autorin den damals vorherrschenden Verhältnissen die Stirn. "Feuerkraut" erzählt mitreißend die Entwicklung der renommierten Historikerin, die Anfänge und die prägenden Erlebnisse vor den und zu Zeiten des Nationalsozialismus in Wien sowie die Zeit nach ihrer Emigration in die USA. Mit viel Selbstironie und Witz setzt sich Gerda Lerner mit ihrem Werdegang auseinander, mit der gescheiterten ersten Ehe, mit der glücklichen zweiten, mit ihrer Rolle als Hausmutter bis hin zur eher "späten" Berufung zu einer der weltbekanntesten Vertreterin der Frauengeschichte. Aus dem Englischen von Andrea Holzmann-Jenkins.

When southern women remove their gloves, they speak their minds. The ten timely and provocative essays in Taking Off the White Gloves represent the collective wisdom of some of the finest scholars on women's history in the American South. On the eve of the thirtieth anniversary of the Southern Association for Women Historians, this volume brings together some of the outstanding lectures delivered by distinguished members of the association over the past fifteen years. Spanning four centuries of women's experiences in the South, the topics featured in Taking Off the White Gloves range from Native American sexuality and European conquest to woman suffrage in the South, from black women's protest history to the status of women in the historical profession at the end of the twentieth century. Despite diverse subject matter, these rich essays share a number of important qualities. They take an integrative approach, combining literary analysis, social history, cultural interpretation, labor history, popular culture, and oral history. Embracing the distinctiveness of the southern past and women's experiences within that past, they also recognize the inextricability of critical categories such as sexuality and gender, race and gender, and women and work. Finally, these essays emphasize the authors' commitment to the belief that the personal is political; they reveal the subtle and not so subtle ways that women transform theory into practice. Taking Off the White Gloves invites a new understanding of the complexities that surround the history of southern women across race, class, place, and time. A model of innovative and imaginative scholarly historical writing, this book provides fertile ground for young scholars and is sure to inspire new research. This thought- provoking volume has much to offer scholars and students, as well as the general reader.

Though often consigned to the footnotes of history, African American women are a significant part of the rich, multiethnic heritage of Texas and the United States. Until now, though, their story has frequently been fragmented and underappreciated. Black Women in Texas History draws together a multi-author narrative of the experiences and impact of black American women from the time of slavery until the recent past. Each chapter, written by an expert on the era, provides a readable survey and overview of the lives and roles of black Texas women during that period. Each provides careful documentation, which, along with the thorough bibliography compiled by the volume editors, will provide a starting point for others wanting to build on this important topic. The authors address significant questions about population demographics, employment patterns, family and social dimensions, legal and political rights, and individual accomplishments. They look not only at how African American women have been shaped by the larger culture but also at how these women have, in turn, affected the culture and history of Texas. This work situates African American women within the context of their times and offers a due appreciation and analysis of their lives and accomplishments. Black Women in Texas History is an important addition to history and sociology curriculums as well as black studies and women’s studies programs. It will provide for interested students, scholars, and general readers a comprehensive survey of the crucial role these women played in shaping the history of the Lone Star State.

Despite recent advances in the study of black thought, black women intellectuals remain often neglected. This collection of essays by fifteen scholars of history and literature establishes black women's places in intellectual history by engaging the work of writers, educators, activists, religious leaders, and social reformers in the United States, Africa, and the Caribbean. Dedicated to recovering the contributions of thinkers marginalized by both their race and their gender, these essays uncover the work of unconventional intellectuals, both formally educated and self-taught, and explore the broad community of ideas in which their work participated. The end result is a field-defining and innovative volume that addresses topics ranging from religion and slavery to the politicized and gendered reappraisal of the black female body in contemporary culture. Contributors are Mia E. Bay, Judith Byfield, Alexandra Cornelius, Thadious Davis, Corinne T. Field, Arlette Frund, Kaiama L. Glover, Farah J. Griffin, Martha S. Jones, Natasha Lightfoot, Sherie Randolph, Barbara D. Savage, Jon Sensbach, Maboula Soumahoro, and Cheryl Wall.
