A collection of political tales—first published in British workers’ magazines—selected and introduced by acclaimed critic and author Michael Rosen In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, unique tales inspired by traditional literary forms appeared frequently in socialist-leaning British periodicals, such as the Clarion, Labour Leader, and Social Democrat. Based on familiar genres—the fairy tale, fable, allegory, parable, and moral tale—and penned by a range of lesser-known and celebrated authors, including Schalom Asch, Charles Allen Clarke, Frederick James Gould, and William Morris, these stories were meant to entertain readers of all ages—and some challenged the conventional values promoted in children’s literature for the middle class. In Workers’ Tales, acclaimed critic and author Michael Rosen brings together more than forty of the best and most enduring examples of these stories in one beautiful volume. Throughout, the tales in this collection exemplify themes and ideas related to work and the class system, sometimes in wish-fulfilling ways. In “Tom Hickathrift,” a little, poor person gets the better of a gigantic, wealthy one. In “The Man Without a Heart,” a man learns about the value of basic labor after testing out more privileged lives. And in “The Political Economist and the Flowers,” two contrasting gardeners highlight the cold heart of Darwinian competition. Rosen’s informative introduction describes how such tales advocated for contemporary progressive causes and countered the dominant celebration of Britain’s imperial values. The book includes archival illustrations, biographical notes about the writers, and details about the periodicals where the tales first appeared. Provocative and enlightening, Workers’ Tales presents voices of resistance that are more relevant than ever before.

Wounded Workers: Tales from a Working Man's Shrink is Dr. Bob Larsen's first book intended for an audience of folks who have worked or are still working. The book recounts the stories of America's workforce subjected to physical and psychological trauma for doing their jobs. Tales from the trenches, of workers tormented by ill fortune, both natural and man-made, is the book's focus. A bank teller robbed one too many times, a paramedic who cannot save his own father's life, a prostitute who becomes an advocate for sex workers and other unfortunate employees find themselves sent to Dr. Bob.Wounded Workers will grab your attention while experiencing the human response to horrific, yet common critical incidents. Clinical terminology is minimized. You won't need a medical degree to understand what these workers go through. Dr. Bob's personal journey as a working-class kid who becomes a scientist, physician and professor is intertwined with the dynamics of victimization, recovery, and advocacy. Readers will be exposed to stories of workers subjected to shootings, amputations, sexual assaults and healthcare-induced disability. Readers will relate to the plight, courage and persistence of victims who could be your neighbor, friend, family member or co-worker. You will be glued to the couch while turning pages.
