Reviews

"By providing a fuller sense of the way of life capitalism destroyed, Customs in Common helps us understand why the resistance to it was so protracted and tenacious. ... [This] long-awaited collection ... is a signal contribution ... [from] the person most responsible for inspiring the revival of American labor history during the past thirty years."
--Michael Merrill, The Nation

"This book signals the return to historical writing of one of the most eloquent, powerful and independent voices of our time. At his best he is capable of a passionate, sardonic eloquence which is unequalled."
--Keith Thomas, The Observer (London)

"Customs in Common is meticulously researched, elegantly argued and deeply humane."
--New York Times Book Review
