Review:

"This collection works. It works because Foner has provided what is needed to understand and appreciate Mother Jones. Each speech is set in context; each document is followed by explanatory notes. The notes [are] almost as valuable as the documents themselves.... a rich, revealing, and superbly edited collection." -- Illinois Historical Journal

"A veritable archive of the legendary radical labor organizer Mary Harris Jones.... The book contains the fiery radical's speeches, congressional testimony, articles, interviews with journalists, and a selection of her letters. Foner places each...in context with excellent short introductions.... He has done a service for students of labor history. Recommended for academic and large public libraries." ---- Library Journal

"Foner emphasizes the constancy of Jones's commitment to socialism, describes her effectiveness as a union organizer, and challenges feminist contentions that Mother Jones was opposed to or, at best, uninterested in the women's rights movement.... Recommended for large public libraries and college libraries at all levels." ---- Choice
