    BETWEEN the HAMMER and the ANVIL, by EDWIN SEAVER. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by EDWIN SEAVER to MYRA PAGE : To Myra Page / with Comradely Greetings / Edwin Seaver. An interesting inscription, from one American Communist to another. Comrades indeed! Stories of New York City in the depths of the Great Depression. Hardcovers, no dustjacket, top page edges stained red, 5.5x8 inches, 383 pages. Published by Julian Messner, New York, 1937. Only FAIR condition: the covers are worn through at the corners, spine ends, and at much of the top edge; the spine covering is completely split and frayed at its front fold, the spine lettering is mostly faded away; internally nice, a few pages have stiff creases at their upper corner but overall the inner pages are tight, bright, clean and unmarked. About MYRA PAGE (from her archives at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and from a 1983 article found on the Internet): ****** Writer, union activist, and communist Dorothy Markey (nee Dorothy Page Gary) was born in Newport News, Va., in 1897. Under the name Myra Page, Markey was an activist and active political journalist. Dorothy Markey died in 1993. On a summer evening this past August, Myra Page sat surrounded by books, papers and manuscripts in her home of thirty-nine years in Yonkers, New York, telling the tale of her most recent demonstration. Her lively eyes belied the eighty-two years that her face and hands proclaimed. A week before, she had joined a group of thirty peace activists, mostly women, as they faced fifty uniformed American Legionnaires in front of Yonkers' World War I memorial. The men insisted it was sacrilegious for the demonstrators to gather at the memorial that steamy Sunday morning on the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing. Tension mounted as members of both groups exchanged comments about nuclear weapons. Several legionnaires proudly recalled where they had been when the bombs exploded in 1946; some argued that their lives had been saved, others that it hastened the end of the war. As Page stood near the commander of the group, he whispered that he didn't want another war either, that he didn't want his grandson to have to fight. The legionnaires moved into formation three deep around the war memorial. The protesters took positions across the street. As Page crossed over with her comrades, the Commander spoke to her again. This time loudly. "Don't worry lady, there'll never be another war!" In reporting this event, as she had the many demonstrations and protests in which she participated during six decades of work for labor, civil rights and human rights causes, Myra Page focused on the personal, highlighting the irony of a Legion commander disclosing private feelings about war to a peace activist. This personal perspective has been at the core of Page's work, as a reformer and labor organizer in the 1920's, as a reporter for the labor press in the 1930's, and then as a writer of fiction. Her dual objectives have been to relate social conditions on a human scale and to place personal struggle within a framework of broader issues.******

    AMERICA, LOOK AND LIVE! by Helen W. Wood. An autobiography of her conversion from Communism to evangelical Christianity.

    SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author on the first blank page: "Sincerely Yours / Helen Wood Birnie / John 15:13". (John 15:13 reads "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.") Helen Wood Birnie is Helen W. Wood's married name.

    Softcovers, booklet, side stapled, 5.5x8 inches, 77 pages.

    GOOD condition, some light soiling and signs of handling to the covers, otherwise tight, bright, clean and clear. A nice copy.

    Helen W. Wood was a lifelong white activist working to defend the rights and save the souls of African Americans. In the 1930s she was a Communist Party organizer. She converted to Christianity while working in the defense of an African American youth in Iowa charged with murder. The Iowa Communist Party opposed her work, but her efforts were supported by the local evangelicals. This began her conversion from Communism to Evangelical Christianity, a process completed in a Los Angeles skid row mission where she continued to work to better the lives of African Americans in need of help.

    Though an Anti-Communist tract, it is also an interesting autobiography that envisions evangelical Christians as people who would not tolerate racism (especially from a President).

    Scarce, especially so SIGNED.

Original 1970 newspaper, 16 pages, 16" x 11.25", illustrated with unique photographs and graphics. GOOD CONDITION: complete as issued, folded (a little off kilter), some wear at the folds and fold intersections (no text loss), pages toned (as normal), some pencil marks, edgewear including light chipping/small closed tears, still a solid, complete, bright, clean and supple copy of this very rare radical 1970 militant Native American newspaper.

    THE WARPATH, a radical Indian rights publication established in 1968 as part of the nascent Red Power Movement. Founded in San Francisco as the official publication for activist journalist Lehman Brightman's new organization, United Native Americans, Inc., a pan tribal Indian liberation group that challenged government power and advocated for Indian self-determination. THE WARPATH fostered Indian pride, attacked stereotypes, highlighted racial discrimination, investigated government abuses, and argued vehemently for more political power for American Indians. With its militant rhetoric reflective of the turbulent times (the Black Panther Party forming in Oakland, Vietnam War and Free Speech protests around the Bay Area, etc.), THE WARPATH was an important voice in the resistance and struggle for Indian rights during its five-year run (1968-1973).

    Lehman Brightman (1930-2017) Sioux and Creek Indian, Long-time Activist, Civil Rights Advocate, Director of the American Indian Studies at UC Berkeley, Professor, founded U.N.A. Inc, took part in the occupations of Alcatraz, Mount Rushmore and Wounded Knee, Publisher of the first inter-tribal militant newspaper, issued a call for war on the B.I.A. and rebelled against the U.S. government's account of history.

    DECLASSIFIED: By Authority of the People. Volume I, Number 5.

This RARE ORIGINAL ISSUE was Printed on AEL Presses During the Nine-day Occupation. 8.5" x 11", Original Stanford Electronics Laboratories letterhead, side staple bound, 8 pages. "Declassified" began with the occupation of the Applied Electronics Laboratories (AEL). Printed between April 10 and May 12, the first issue was called "Unclassified", with subsequent issues titled "Declassified". On April 3, 1969 Stanford University students formed a coalition to take action against Vietnam War related research at Stanford. Backing up their demands with more direct action, they seized the Applied Electronics Laboratory on April 9, vowing to hold it until the administration capitulated. This nine-day sit-in at AEL, known as "The April Third Movement" ultimately brought an end to Stanford's secret military research. The students turned the laboratory printshop into an underground press distributing "Declassified" and other sensational exposés on AEL and the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). They managed to hold out for nine days until Stanford's president threatened to suspend them. Stanford Electronics Laboratories (SEL), part of SRI, had been running CIA sponsored electronic communications and surveillance research and other classified war contracts for the armed services. The April Third Movement was part of a national youth movement on university campuses across America - the Stanford students were successful in eliminating classified research at Stanford and contributing to the protests that ended the Vietnam War. This Rare Original Document is in GOOD CONDITION: Complete as issued. Just light wear, and stiff vertical/horizontal creasing affecting all the pages, from having been folded into quarters, otherwise bright, clean, and unmarked.
