Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent book about the origin of antebellum machinist networks and their profound effect on U.S. industrialization across a wide range of industries. In focusing on the machinists and not just the machines, it advances our understanding of technological change.

(Ross D. Thomson, University of Vermont, author of The Path to Mechanized Shoe Production in the United States)

This study contains a wealth of information and surprises.

(Choice)

An excellent, up-to-date, synthetic volume with strong themes and evidence.

(Ross Thomson EH.Net)

An excellent synthesis of decades of scholarship.

(Anne Kelly Knowles Technology and Culture)

This book will be an important volume for specialists.

(Lawrence A. Peskin Register of the Kentucky Historical Society)

Meyer's book should prove invaluable to scholars of early American industrialization, and particularly to historians of technology.

(Sean Patrick Adams American Historical Review)

A first-rate scholarly synthesis that also demonstrates considerable new research.

(David A. Hounshell Journal of American History)

Elegantly spanning the fields of geography, sociology, business history, and the history of technology, this book should readily appeal.

(Angelina Long Industrial Archaeology)
