Class and Community: The Industrial Revolution in Lynn, Twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition, with a New Preface

Forsideomslag
Harvard University Press, 2000 - 301 sider
In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of his prize-winning book, Dawley reflects once more on labor and class issues, poverty and progress, and the contours of urban history in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts, during the rise of industrialism in the early nineteenth century. He not only revisits this urban conglomeration, but also seeks out previously unheard groups such as women and blacks. The result is a more rounded portrait of a small eastern city on the verge of becoming modern.
