Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The essays in this innovative, state-of-the-art volume examine from multiple angles the complicated relationship between sex and class, thereby advancing the theoretical agenda of European labor history."—Karen Offen, Institute for Research on Women and Gender, Stanford University, American Historical Review, February 1998

"The editors of this collection of essays use their introduction to survey recent work on proletarianization—public and private—in labour history, as well as new directions in feminist scholarship. . . .The book is wide-ranging and represents a tightly structured introduction to its theme."—AJF, Times Literary Supplement, February 28, 1997
