When it was first published,Maid in the USAwas one of the first books to show the struggles of female and immigrant domestic workers in the United States. The book quickly became a landmark in the field as a startling original and critical overview of domestic workers that combined a race, class, and gender analysis. Both critically and popularly praised, Mary Romero's work brilliantly brings to light the complexity of the lives of domestic workers, most notably explaining the rise of Latinas and other women of color into the ranks of domestic cleaners and maids. Through startling interviews with Latina private household workers, Romero provides a unique window into their working conditions, their relationships with their (mostly female and white) employers, and their personal lives. Romero also tells of her own experiences as a young woman working as a domestic alongside her mother and other members of her family. The exciting 10th anniversary edition of this classic work includes a newintroduction by Romero that updates the state of domestic work and provides an overview of the "Nannygate" scandals in the recent past. There is also a new afterward from legendary scholar Dorothy E. Smith discussing the importance of this book for the field.

Argues that Hannah Arendt's two major philosophical works, The Human Condition and The Life of the Mind, reveal not a dependency upon Heidegger, but rather a constant and increasing ironic debate with him.
An irresistible reimagining of the Robin Hood legend, Maid Marian brings to life the rollicking--and romantic--world of the Middle Ages. An orphan and heiress to a large country estate, Marian Fitzwater is wed at the age of five to an equally young nobleman, Lord Hugh of Sencaster, a union that joins her inheritance to his, vastly enriching his family. But when she is seventeen, Lord Hugh, whom she hasn't seen in years, dies under mysterious circumstances, leaving her alone again--a widow who has never been a bride. Like all unmarried young ladies of fortune, she is made a ward of Richard the Lionheart, England's warrior king. With King Richard away on Crusade, Marian's fate lies in the hands of his mother, the formidable Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, who will arrange her second marriage. The lucky bridegroom will get Marian's lands and, in return, pledge his loyalty--and silver--to King Richard. Marian herself is irrelevant and she knows it. Determined not to be sold into another sham marriage, she seeks out the one man whose spies can help uncover the queen's plans--Robin Hood, the notorious Saxon outlaw of Sherwood Forest. Marian is surprised to discover that the famed "prince of thieves" is not only helpful but handsome, likable and sympathetic to her plight. Following her plan, Robin’s men intercept a letter from Queen Eleanor, from which Marian learns, to her horror, that she is to marry her late husband’s brother. His family's history of mysterious deaths, puts Marian in grave danger. Once married, her land becomes theirs and they can easily dispose of her--a fate she may have only narrowly escaped already. On the eve of her wedding, Robin Hood spirits Marian back to the forest. Queen Eleanor believes her to be dead, allowing Marian to begin a new life with Robin Hood's outlaws, who pledge to help her regain her fortune and expose the treachery of her enemies.
