"Radical history at its best, speaking directly to the descendants of radicals and social visionaries about the lessons of their past."--Monthly Review

"This is a first-rate study of the interplay between class and ethnicity in a late nineteenth-century industrial city. . . . an important book that should be read not only by students of labor and immigration history but by all those interested in the evolution of American culture and values."--American Studies
