Praise

“What makes this book so impressive is the way in which it captures the life and times of an American factory-city. The authors have achieved the two things necessary for this kind of study: a solid background of history and economics, and a way of listening to what is being said which goes beyond information and into the person saying it. The book is excellent on the fracturing of the family and in its vivid description of factory work. Because of the emigrations and the similarity of the huge industrial centers. Amoskeag cannot be seen as a purely American experience: it touches Britain and Europe.”
—Ronald Blythe, author of Akenfield
