by Norman H. Clark (Author). Mill Town is a fascinating, and extremely detailed, look at the first 25 years or so of Everett. As my family settled in Everett during the time this book discusses, I thought the level of detail was wonderful -- but that it could be quite tedious for most other people. Apart from those interested in Everett, I'd recommend the book for anyone who's a serious student of the labor movement. Professor Clark gives an excellent micro-view of the conflicts between labor and management.

I live in Everett, Washington and am trying to learn about the varied history of my town. Very informative about Everett's time as a timber town and references the introduction of the labor union into the logging industry and the ensuing "Everett massacre".

Well-written history of the colorful, corrupt, amusing, hard life, complex building of early WA state communities, including competition between Seattle and Everett. Compelling description of the struggles between skilled labor unions, the Wobblies, and the imperialist timber barons and mill owners who pitted the two against each other in order to control workers. Rich descriptions of individuals heavily involved and their own motivations, as well as the fierce battles that led to a shameful massacre of Wobblies by good town folk in Everett, WA. Also explains how the aftermath of this stage in labor organizing led to employee sabotage efforts on the part of the skilled locals, which led to the federal government forcing middle class unions on private sector industries. WWI needed fighting and the US government needed cooperative laborers.

Mill Town is a fascinating, and extremely detailed, look at the first 25 years or so of Everett. As my family settled in Everett during the time this book discusses, I thought the level of detail was wonderful --- but that it could be quite tedious for most other people.

Apart from those interested in Everett, I'd recommend the book for anyone who's a serious student of the labor movement. Professor Clark gives an excellent micro-view of the conflicts between labor and management. The narrative helped me understand better the origins of labor unions and why workers in certain industries are so hostile toward management (and vice versa). Though his sympathies are clearly with labor, he gives a fair portrayal of management's side.

I'd also recommend the book to anyone studying the progressive movement. Clark goes into great depth about the goals of progressives, their interactions with organized labor, and some of the key reasons why they failed as a political force.

Clark is a terrific story-teller. If Everett, or organized labor, or the progressive movement are your thing, this book is definitely worth the read.
