About this title


Miller, Marc Scott, Irony Of Victory, The: World War II And Lowell, Massachusetts

From Library Journal:

Miller, an historian who now edits Technology Review , draws heavily upon oral histories as well as archival material and newspaper accounts to study the effect of World War II on the declining textile town of Lowell, Massachusetts. He is best when describing how war changed the lives of community members and when arguing that the war had few, if any, positive effects upon Lowell since the city returned to a "depressed" economic state as soon as the war-driven manufacturing boom ended. Less convincing are the parallels between Lowell in the 1940s and today, when current prosperity is based on high-technology industries. Ann H. Sullivan, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll. Lib., Dryden,
