Abstract

In Shredding Paper: The Rise and Fall of Maine’s Mighty Paper Industry, Michael G. Hillard offers a new history of paper manufacturing in the US, focusing on the changing fortunes of Maine’s paper industry. Positioning the story of the paper mills as a microcosm of rapidly transforming markets and values across the US and international economic landscape, this page-turning, scholarly analysis elevates paper manufacturing to its rightful place within US labour history, writes Jeff Roquen. Shredding Paper: The Rise and Fall of Maine’s Mighty Paper Industry. Michael G. Hillard. Cornell University Press. 2021.
