Between the Hills and the Sea
Introduction by David Montgomery
Between the Hills and the Sea by Katya and Bert Gilden vividly portrays the disillusionment of working-class idealists in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Originally published in 1971, the book is an absorbing novel. It also provides an authentic portrait of the social dynamics in a factory town and the effects of McCarthyism on working people's lives.
The late David Montgomery was Farnam Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University and the author of several books, including The Fall of the House of Labor: The Workplace, the State, and American Labor Activism, 1865-1925.
