Overview

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.

What People are Saying About This

At a time when global forces often seem more important than any particular place, this classic study of America's industrial revolution reminds us that the local community can sometimes provide the most revealing setting for understanding larger social processes.
