Traces a day in the life of a general store and the storekeeper who runs it, following the adventures of numerous customers as they shop for what they need  
From Publishers Weekly
It is not even dawn, but the amiable storekeepera plump, elderly woman wearing a bright-red sweater over her blue-checked dressis up to receive a supply of doughnuts from a delivery man and to prepare for the busy day ahead in her store. The road crew stops in, as do sleepy children on the way to school. Toddlers with a grandfather spend most of the day taking apart displays; one man seems especially interested in those doughnuts; the storekeeper's cats follow a storyline all their own until they, with their mistress, say good night. While imparting some information about a storekeeper's tasks (seeing salespeople, stocking shelves), the book captures the essentially social aspects of the general store environment. This has all the appeal

Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, New York, U.S.A. (1977)  
First U.S. edition. First published, same year, in the UK by Cape and ostensibly a children's picture book, this is a work chiefly regarded for the thirteen amazing color plates by Alan Aldridge.

WESTERN WOMEN, THEIR LAND, THEIR LIVES,  Paperback book,   Tight and secure,   In recent years the study of western history has been transformed by scholarship on the actual experiences of the women who settled the West. The essays gathered here, first presented at a 1984 conference sponsored by the Southwest Institute for Research on Women, analyze and interpret this new body of research. Each essay is accompanied by several commentaries that reveal the complex multicultural character of the West through the experiences of American Indian, Mexican-American, and Anglo-American (including Mormon) women. The discussion of domestic ideology examines what values Anglo women carried west and how their values influenced their perception of women of other races, cultures, and religions. An exploration of the religious experiences of indigenous women leads to a consideration of cross-cultural marriage as a catalyst of social and cultural change. A study of the Anglo family raises questions about its stability and the western values of individualism and self-determination. Essays on women's attitudes toward landscape, the place of Mexican-American women in the workforce, the legal rights of Indian women, the experiences of women on other frontiers, and on the public interpretation of women's history point toward exciting scholarly work that lies ahead.

The Wages of Whiteness: Race and the Making of the American Working Class Paperback

By David R. Roediger  (Author)  
Paperback book  Name crossed out on first page,  Binding tight and secure,  

Combining classical Marxism, psychoanalysis, and the new labor history pioneered by E. P. Thompson and Herbert Gutman, David Roediger’s widely acclaimed book provides an original study of the formative years of working-class racism in the United States. This, he argues, cannot be explained simply with reference to economic advantage; rather, white working-class racism is underpinned by a complex series of psychological and ideological mechanisms that reinforce racial stereotypes, and thus help to forge the identities of white workers in opposition to Blacks.  
David Roediger is Kendrick Babcock Chair of History at the University of Illinois. Among his books are Our Own Time: A History of American Labor and the Working Day (with Philip S. Foner), How Race Survived US History: From Settlement and Slavery to the Obama Phenomenon, and The Wages of Whiteness: Race and the Making of the American Working Class. He is the editor of Fellow

Wage-Earning Women: Industrial Work and Family Life in the United States, 1900-1930 (Galaxy Books) 
by Leslie Woodcock Tentler  (Author)  
PAPERBACK BOOK,  Tight and secure binding,  
With the first generations of wage-earning women, precedents were established that still operate in today's workforce. An understanding of the early decades of this century is thus essential for women's studies, labor history, and sociology. Writing with a keen eye for detail as well as a real empathy with these women, Leslie Tentler reconstructs the day-to-day realities of life on the job, in the home and in the industrial neighborhoods of major cities. In doing so, she explores the myth that jobs outside the home for this generation led to women's emancipation.  
"[A] beautifully written study...[It] offers a truly fresh perspective on women's past work experience while at the same time raising important new questions about the interpretation of present trends."--Social Science Journal


"A vivid picture of the close relationship between family and job. [Wage-Earning Women] offers a compelling description of carefully regulated lives,
