MEDIA REVIEWS

Uneasy Allies makes several important contributions to both labor history and the history of social reform. Not only does this detailed account of labor reform add to our understanding of labor in the nineteenth century, but also... is to date one of the best refutations of Common's theory of the labor movement. Uneasy Allies goes a long way to restore the full range of the visions of working people and a much more nuanced and complex understanding of the cross-class coalitions that often developed.... Uneasy Allies should be in the hands of every labor activist interested in building stronger labor coalitions. For it not only shows how coalitions were present at the founding of the American labor movement, but Zonderman's superb analysis of the labor reform in nineteenth-century Boston has much to teach contemporary activists.--Tom Juravich "Business History Review "
