Synopsis: This Book Explores New Evidence On The Gendered Nature Of Working Class experience and on gender relations within the Toronto working class. Christina Burr uses case studies of the printing and garment industries to demonstrate how class, race, and especially gender were integral to the politics of work and labour reform in nineteenth-century Toronto.

One of the unique features of the study is Burr's use of workers' poetry, fiction, and political cartoons as source material. Language, symbols, and popular culture, in addition to economic factors, are used to understand how the working class experienced their world. Burr employs a deconstructionist cultural materialist approach to explain the strategies by which power relations were produced and reproduced by Toronto labour reformers.

In addition to being a valuable scholarly contribution, Spreading the Light is a focused study on an interesting topic, and as such will prove to be a popular book in Canadian social history, women's history, and labour history, courses.
