No exactly a page-turner, Pullman is an excellent study of both the idealistic company town and the man who developed it. Thorough research and well-honed writing - hallmarks of 1960s' historiography - are features of this book. Buder offers us neither heroes nor villains but rather a balanced view of the variety of the human condition.

If you want a nice overview of George Pullman, his business, and his town, this is a great place to start.

Really interesting subject matter. But written too much like a textbook. If Steven Puleo or Sebastian Junger had written it, it would have been a best seller.
