In this 25th anniversary edition of his Bancroft Prize-winning book, Dawley reflects once more on labour and class issues, poverty and progress and the contours of urban history in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts, during the rise of industrialism in the early 19th century. He not only revisits this urban conglomeration, but also seeks out previously unheard groups such as women and blacks. The result is a more rounded portrait of a small eastern city on the verge of becoming modern.
