Rose Pastor arrived in New York City in 1903, a Jewish refugee from Russia who had worked in cigar factories since the age of 11. Two years later, she captured headlines across the globe when she married James Graham Phelps Stokes, scion of one of the legendary 400 families of New York high society. Together, this unusual couple joined the burgeoning Socialist Party and, over the next dozen years, moved among the liveliest group of activists and dreamers this country has ever seen. REBEL CINDERELLA unearths the rich, overlooked life of a social justice campaigner who was truly ahead of her time.

For three years in the 1930s, the world watched, riveted, as the Spanish Civil War became the battleground in a fight between freedom and fascism that would soon take on global proportions. Confronting a right-wing coup led by Francisco Franco and heavily aided by Hitler and Mussolini, volunteers flooded in to support Spain’s democratic government. Among them were nearly 3,000 Americans, called by their convictions to lend a hand in a brutal conflict their government wanted no part of. In SPAIN IN OUR HEARTS, Adam Hochschild weaves together the stories of some dozen foreigners to reveal the full tragedy and importance of the war.
