[A] fitting 50-year celebration of what was perhaps the most significant and most enduring of all the alternative service programs developed in World War II as 'work of national importance. * Mennonite Quarterly Review *
This is the first book to chronicle the experiences of conscientious objectors assigned to duty in mental health hospitals of this country.... The result is an involving, revealing portrait. * The Midwest Book Review *
