Praise

The Boston Police Strike, long forgotten and too long ignored, is here described with great drama and verve by Francis Russell. It is an extraordinary moment in the history of Boston, as well as an important event in the nation’s labor history.–Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States

“Francis Russell is wonderfully aware of the subtle but important distinctions of class and neighborhood that have been so much a part of Boston’s history. A City in Terror is well written, full of shrewd social analysis and cultural history, and provides an account that gives perspective to today’s serious confrontations.”–Robert Coles, New York Review of Books

“Compelling and lively . . . A City in Terror has plenty of drama and heroes and villains. Russell is at home in the history of the era and in Massachusetts, and he tells his story well; A City in Terror makes stimulating reading.” –David M. Reimers, American Historical Review

“A fascinating study and social history of one of the strangest episodes in American labor history . . . as well as an unforgettable lesson in the machinations of big-city and state politics.”–The New Republic
