Editorial Reviews

"Since the strike of 1894, the primary historical issue posed by George M. Pullman's model workers' community has been whether it should be interpreted as vicious exploitation or as naive paternalism....This full-length history of the town of Pullman considerably expands this framework.[Buder] has written an objective, well-documented book....He has attempted to understand, rather than summarily condemn, the motives of its founder. He has even removed it from the confines of labour history by treating it as well from the perspective of community planning....Pullman will proveuseful to historians in a wide range of fields."--Stuart Blumin, Economic History Review
