Coman "Industrial History of the United States" is particularly strong in so stating industrial facts and conditions as to place clearly before a reader's mind the relation of those facts and conditions to contemporary historical and political conceptions. It is, too, a mine of useful information and interesting facts which are extremely difficult to obtain elsewhere, and which are presented in a form which stimulates interest and invites continuous reading. Consequently it is one of the few books which may not only be used to advantage as texts but which are also interesting to the general reader. The final chapter on Conservation is particularly interesting and is probably the best brief presentation of the subject now in print.
"Primarily a text-book for class-room work, it none the less furnishes much suggestive material for a more profound study. No subject, surely, could be more fascinating.... As a whole, this is a most excellent guide-book for a region of history that has been as yet but little studied. Its points of excellence are many."

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich."It is in my judgment by far the best history of England that has yet been published. The other books in the field are either too meagre or too advanced. This book is just what has long been needed and ought to be largely introduced." -- Professor Richard Hudson.
