Reviews

"In a powerful novel that spans three generations of a Slovak family, Thomas Bell vividly tells the story of immigrants and their children who lived, toiled, and died in America's mill towns."
--Journal of American Ethnic History

"I use Out of This Furnace as a first reading in my American History course because it provides an overview of the period, introduces the idea of industrialization from a worker point of view, and provides insights into immigrant ethnic communities in twentieth-century America."
--Lawrence Levine, George Mason University


"A wonderful book to use for a survey of American history."
--Mary Frederickson, University of Alabama
