"Rees has written a thoroughly readable and persuasive account of the role of industrialization in shaping the modern United States. Teachers of the undergraduate U.S. history survey course will find Industrialization and the Transformation of American Life to be a very useful supplement to other texts, and faculty teaching other U.S. history courses will find many valuable historical case studies as well." --H-Net Reviews
"Rees covers a large swath of land and has done so in an economical and quite interesting traverse. The topical method of organization as well as the choice of topics is laudable. He has skillfully tied the discussion of those topics closely and consistently to the main thread of industrialization. ... In spite of its brevity, this is one of the clearest, cleanest, and most useful accounts of industrialization that I have read." --Stanley K. Schultz, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"Ingenious and insightful, this book is a marvelous introduction to a subject that every college-educated student should know about." --Robert W. Rydell, Montana State University
"Rees's book takes industrialization, a concept we think we know so well, as his lens into the Progressive Era, and shows us how no moment, person, or event remains untouched by its power. By systematically describing what industrialization is and entails, he requires us to think twice about commonplace items, habits, and institutions we take for granted and instead, see their potential--both frightening and alluring--to transform the country into a modern nation." --Robin Henry, Wichita State University
"This accessible title could serve as supplemental reading for a survey course in US history or an upper-division course in US industrialization, the Gilded Age, or the Progressive Era. Recommended. All levels of undergraduate students." --Choice
