About this title:

Synopsis:

"No historian has done more to illuminate the achievements of female labor in the early textile mills than Thomas Dublin. . . . In this latest book, he provides a broad account of women's work during the industrial transformation of America, giving us the chance to test the typicality of the factory experience against other forms of female employment. He mines a breathtaking array of sources, including business records, census data, deeds, wills, diaries, and personal correspondence, to reconstruct the circumstances surrounding women's work in New England from the 1820s to 1900. . . . Dublin's ingenious detective work in matching families in archival sources enables him to make important points."-Women's Review of Books

Review: "An elegant and important contribution to the literature on women's employment."-Louise A. Tilly

"In his impressively researched book, Thomas Dublin examines the transformation of women's work in New England, the first American region to be reshaped by the Industrial Revolution. . . . A valuable addition to the scholar's shelf. The data provide the single most detailed description of women and work a century ago."-New York Times Book Review
