Between 1912 and 1919, the Universal Film Manufacturing Company credited eleven women with directing at least 170 films, but by the mid-1920s all of these directors had left Universal and only one still worked in the film industry at all. Two generations of cinema historians have either overlooked or been stymied by the mystery of why Universal first systematically supported and promoted women directors and then abruptly reversed that policy. In this trailblazing study, Mark Garrett Cooper approaches the phenomenon as a case study in how corporate movie studios interpret and act on institutional culture in deciding what it means to work as a man or woman. In focusing on issues of institutional change, Cooper challenges interpretations that explain women's exile from the film industry as the inevitable result of a transhistorical sexism or as an effect of a broadly cultural revision of gendered work roles. Drawing on a range of historical and sociological approaches to studying corporate institutions, Cooper examines the relationship between institutional organization and aesthetic conventions during the formative years when women filmmakers such as Ruth Ann Baldwin, Cleo Madison, Ruth Stonehouse, Elise Jane Wilson, and Ida May Park directed films for Universal.

The celebrated Cuban American poet and novelist offers “a fine portrait of a hedonist and a cad” set in “the Cuban, expatriate community in Florida” (The New York Times). Pablo Medina’s The Cigar Roller recounts the life of Cuban master cigar roller Amadeo Terra. A proud and capricious man, tobacco has been the center of his life, the source of his passion. Though he committed many sins in his time, he was always forgiven due to his considerable talents with the leaves. An imperious patriarch of enormous appetites, Amadeo now lies in a Florida hospital after suffering a stroke. And only now does he finally look back at his previously unexamined life. One day, his nurse feeds him mango from a baby-food jar—a change from the tasteless mush he frequently rejects—and the taste brings memories of his life in Havana flooding back to him. He recalls his turbulent, passionate relationship with his wife Julia, his numerous romantic transgressions, the three sons he’s kept at a distance, the political strife that forced his family to relocate from Cuba to Florida, and finally the tragedy that he’s kept locked away all these years. The Cigar Roller is “an evocative snapshot of an era gone up in smoke,” and a portrait of a once robust man who, at the end of his imperfect life, clamors for a quotient of dignity and grace as he comes to terms with his regrets (Detroit Free Press).

In Trade Unions and Community Dorothee Schneider argues that German unions played a vital role in building community for German immigrants in North America. More than other organizations such as churches or regional groups, Schneider maintains, trade unions were in the best position to build community in a new, rapidly changing industrial society. Why were the unions so well suited to the development of the German-American working class and its integration into North American society and politics? What was the effect of the trade unions' central role on the community as a whole? Did these unions carry their community-building role into the American trade union movement in general? To answer these questions, Schneider focuses on German-American skilled workers, portraying a group of immigrants who brought from Europe not just their pre-industrial traditions but also a wealth of experience in industrialized settings and a diverse political culture. Examining bakers, brewery workers, and cigar makers, she highlights the origins of the political culture of the American immigrant working class in a new way. Schneider argues that, in spite of the contradictory interests of traditionalists, political progressives, and assimilationists, German-American workers favored a centralized craft unionism and thus became backers of Samuel Gompers's American Federation of Labor.
