Review quote

"Schneirov's excellent study examines the impact of the organized working class on Chicago politics from the end of the American Civil War to the close of the nineteenth century... This exhaustively researched book, which makes labour history an integral and important part of the mainstream American history, is heartily recommended." -- John F. Lyons, Labour History Reviews
