"The book ranks with the finest products of the new labor history... A significant contribution to debates over the role of ethnicity, gender, and skill in American labor history, it also enhances our understanding of American intellectual life in the early twentieth century." --Journal of Economic History "Golin offers a major reinterpretation of the Paterson strike as a turning point in the history of American radical culture... More than other labor historians, Golin approaches his subject from a cultural and intellectual perspective." --The Journal of American History "Golin has provided us with a pioneering work that demands a fundamental reinterpretation of the Paterson strike, one that finally accords the workers themselves the historical recognition that their extraordinary effort so richly deserves." --Labor History "Steve Golin presents an enthusiastic, politically engaged analysis of the strike. His beautifully written study demonstrates how a detailed narrative of a limited historical episode can throw a spotlight on broader issues in the history of American workers...a significant contribution to labor history." --Union Labor News "[Golin] makes his case with rich details that bring the whole dramatic series of events to life." --Labour/Le Travail "[Golin] has restored the 'fragile bridge' of the Paterson strike that fused at and class consciousness, and he has constructed new bridges between the scholarly domains of social and cultural history and between the 'moment' of 1913, so filled with revolutionary promise, and our own time." --International Review of Social History "An excellent book... Golin's exciting, moving, informative book reminds us that social history is something not only to be written and read, but to be made." --Zeta Magazine
