The variety of genres shows the breadth and versatility of Meskin’s craft, from the noirish chiaroscuro of his crime work to the chiseled, gritty realism of his Westerns.Both in tandem with his partner Jerry Robinson and frequent collaborator George Roussos, and solo, Meskin set a new high bar for comics in the first three decades of the medium, and this book will be a revelation to both the casual graphic novel reader and the ardent fan.

From Out of the Shadows was the first full study of Mexican-American women in the twentieth century. Beginning with the first wave of Mexican women crossing the border early in the century, historian Vicki L. Ruiz reveals the struggles they have faced and the communities they have built. In a narrative enhanced by interviews and personal stories, she shows how from labor camps, boxcar settlements, and urban barrios, Mexican women nurtured families, worked for wages, built extended networks, and participated in community associations--efforts that helped Mexican Americans find their own place in America. She also narrates the tensions that arose between generations, as the parents tried to rein in young daughters eager to adopt American ways. Finally, the book highlights the various forms of political protest initiated by Mexican-American women, including civil rights activity and protests against the war in Vietnam.For this new edition of From Out of the Shadows, Ruiz has written an afterword that continues the story of the Mexicana experience in the United States, as well as outlines new additions to the growing field of Latina history.
This poetry book is work from the 8th grade community at Monarch Academy, Glen Burnie MD from the year 2017. Our goal was to create a poem based on experiences that we had during the different case studies within our Fall Expedition: Are You An Agent Of Change? Every 8th grader was a part of this process. We wrote the poems. We edited them. We created student-made art to connect our poems and case studies. We formed a publication team to compile and publish them. We are finally able to make this happen with each and everyone's creativity and influence. Topics that are included in this book are the Industrial Revolution (including Child Labor), World War I, the Holocaust, and the Rwandan Genocide. We wanted to be able to show our high quality work to others outside of our community and what poetry really means to us. Thank you, and we hope you enjoy!
