"Largely forgotten today, Henry Alsberg is the kind of hero we need to celebrate and the kind of man we need to emulate. Susan Rubenstein DeMasi has brought him back to life for us with her well-crafted biography of this literary savant who doubled as a human rights champion. Flawed and fascinating, Alsberg has met in DeMasi the perfect chronicler of his remarkable journey."--William F. Schulz, President, Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and former Executive Director of Amnesty International USA "The early 20th century was a turbulent time of social change, soaring political hopes and disillusion. There was the beginning of the NAACP, the American Civil Liberties Union and other social justice movements. And there was a man who worked with them all: Henry Alsberg. Susan Rubenstein DeMasi has resurrected Alsberg, entertainingly told his story, and through him, the story of anti–Semitic pogroms, the aspirations and betrayals of Communism, the persecution of dissent in America, and the first organized effort to help political prisoners. I never knew about Henry Alsberg, or his role in these issues. Now I do. And so should you."--Ira Glasser, Executive Director, American Civil Liberties Union, 1978–2001 (retired). During the Great Depression, Henry Alsberg, a journalist with a passion for social justice, directed the Federal Writers' Project, a New Deal program of the Works Progress Administration. Under his guidance, thousands of unemployed writers were hired. Despite attacks from the House Committee on Un-American Activities, the Project produced more than 1,000 publications from 1935 to 1939, including the still highly acclaimed American Guide series. Some writers, such as Richard Wright, went on to storied careers. Alsberg led the Project's collection of more than 10,000 oral histories from ex-slaves, immigrants and others. Alsberg was also a leader in the struggle to save Jewish pogrom survivors in Eastern Europe. Later, he initiated the first major effort to assist international political prisoners. His friends included anarchist revolutionary Emma Goldman and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter. This book brings Alsberg to light as an important but forgotten figure of the 20th century.

Ellen S. Woodward (18871971) was touted as Roosevelts second most powerful woman appointee. Among American women only Eleanor Roosevelt and Labor Department Secretary Frances Perkins could claim more elevated roles in the circle of FDRs administration. This long overdue biography of such a remarkable leader traces Woodwards odyssey from the parlors of her Mississippi clubwomen associates to a position as director of womens work relief under three successive New Deal agencies from 1933 to 1938. Swain depicts Woodward in the vital roles she took in alleviating the working womans plight. Particularly rich is Swains account of Woodwards attempts to remain vital in policymaking during the Truman era, when Eleanor Roosevelt was no longer the central figure of the womens coterie. Without minimizing the limitations of the programs under Woodwards aegis, Swain gives ample attention to the operation and internal dynamics of her ambitious projects. Though some of Woodwards projec

In this classic spiritual guide, Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, dispels the myth that God is beyond our reach. He points out that it is not only possible to talk with God but to receive definite responses to our prayers. Defining the Lord as both the transcendent, universal Spirit and the intimately personal Father, Mother, Friend, and Lover of all, he helps us to realize how close that infinite and all-loving Being is to each one of us. He also explains how we can make our prayers so powerful and persuasive that they will bring a tangible response.
