Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dons and Workers is an ambitious attempt to assess the significance of this much neglected movement. The result is probably the fullest and liveliest account to date of Oxford's role in creating the intelligentsia of Labor in the first part of the 20th century."--Labor History

"Lawrence Goldman does an excellent job of carefully sifting evidence and reaching jucicious conclusions."--American Historical Review
