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.
