Praise For Pittsburgh Surveyed: Social Science and Social Reform in the Early Twentieth Century

“It's a must read for anyone interested in the history of Pittsburgh or a better understanding of the social workers, sociologists, and reformers who comprised turn-of-the-century progressivism. Pittsburgh Surveyed is also an exceptionally well-produced volume, nicely designed with high quality graphic presentation.”
