Editorial Reviews

Carl Strikwerda has skillfully and thoroughly investigated the workers' movement in Ghent, Brussels, and Liège. He offers an innovative study of the mutual relationship of trade unionism, socialism, anarchism, Catholicism, and ethnicity in the period of emerging mass politics. . . . with admirable clarity, he has written a fine book, of great interest not only to Belgian scholars, but to all historians interested in the emergence of a pluralistic mass political life.
