Pressestimmen

"[The] authors infuse the city and its history with life... [Readers] will emerge with an uncommonly complete picture of the character of Baltimore and its people." --Nancy Brennan, Executive Director, Baltimore City Life Museums "The Baltimore Book tells the story of the real people of Baltimore--the true fabric of the city. These are the courageous individuals who fought for their right to work, and fought for their right to buy a home and live where they chose. Their goals and their struggle to achieve those goals is the real story of how a city grows." --Barbara A. Mikulski, United States Senator from Maryland "...'must' reading for anyone who wishes to develop a comprehensive view of the city's history in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries..." --Robert J. Brugger, Editor, Maryland Historical Magazine "The Baltimore Book provides a graphic, at times chilling, portrait of working and living conditions for generations of poor and working-class Baltimoreans." --The Baltimore Sun "A refreshing, user-friendly, populists' history, this new book chronicles the history of the city through the eyes and emotions of its working classes." --Baltimore Magazine
