Of the many books of Lowell's operatives, only Dublin's perceives the indissoluble relationship of consciousness and material reality. He has explored this history with better judgment and more sensitivity toward the common life of Lowell's female labor force than any other scholar of our day. (The National)
Given the many vantage points from which the Lowell experience can be viewed, it is doubtful that any one study can be 'definitive,' but Dublin has made long strides toward that goal. His lucid presentation and analysis of evidence make Women at Work a model of social history. (Yale Review)
