Directions: In two to three typewritten, double-spaced, and numbered pages (around 750 words) write a book review of Erin’s Daughters. You are to use the book in order to explore an aspect of United States history between 1865 and 1900. This requirement does not mean you write a summary of the book nor are you simply giving your reaction to it. The Heilbroner and Singer chapter on Canvas makes a series of points about Americans’ changing attitudes to work, observing that “Workers complained that in a factory a man lost his identity as a man and took a number like a prisoner in a penitentiary.”[1] You can use Erin’s Daughters as a source to support this observation and show how immigrants took jobs that native-born Americans refused to do. Alternatively, you can identify a topic that Hasia Diner writes about in Erin’s Daughters, examples that come to mind include the changing role of women in America; the adjustment to urban life; the rise of populist politics and organization; the role of religion in American life; the struggle of existing institutions in America to adjust to immigration or urbanization; the existence of anti-immigrant sentiment; American national identity. The choice is up to you, but you must be able to convince the reader of its significance.
