From the Back Cover:

"'Bread and Roses is packed with facts, but Watson. . . . makes it an exciting read." "A fast- paced, well-researched narrative. . . "
New York Times

"A skilled storyteller, Watson offers a moving and compelling account of radical dreams, conservative nightmares and immigrant aspirations that informed the making of modern America. Watson dramatically and effectively brings back to life the 1912 Lawrence strike. With a keen eye for geographical and biographical detail, he captures the contours of industrial New England, recreates the gritty neighborhoods populated by various European immigrant groups, and carefully lays out the ideological beliefs and personal circumstances of the conflict's many principal actors."
Chicago Tribune

"A spirited account."
Boston Globe
