Format: Hardcover
This is history at its best. Butler's work discusses the emergent class and ethnic tensions in a industrial midwestern town and situates its history in the larger patterns of change across America. Butler's style and writing has a flare and a richness unique in historical accounts of this sort--I could not put the book down! Butler has style!
