"This collection contains much of interest and value. . . This new 'turn', back to history, is to be warmly welcomed."—Labor History Review
"Reworking Class offers a convincing argument and an impressive array of examples showing that the concept of class can be resuscitated, especially in historical analyses."—Jan Pakulski, University of Tasmania, Journal of the History of Behavioral Sciences. Winter, 2000.
"In sum, while social movement scholars will not find specific guidelines for conducting class-based research, they will have gained new insights and entered into a stimulating conversation about constructing and de-constructing our understandings of class. This is an informative and interesting volume to browse through with the understanding that connections drawn to social movement theory will be mostly of our own making. Eclectic in viewpoint and theoretically engaging, Reworking Class offers no clear redefinition of class but instead contributes to the dialogue by highlighting the core issues in the debate."—Jo Reger, Skidmore College. Mobilization, Fall 2001
