      "Rich in detail, studded with telling anecdotes, Dishing It Out
        is just as vivid and evocative as its title suggests. . . . This book
        speaks with clarity and good sense to the major debates in the history
        of work and gender and will become a landmark in our growing understanding
        of the relationships between the two."
        -- Susan Porter Benson, author of Counter Cultures
      "In this imaginative study of waitresses, work, and unionism, Cobble
        challenges us all to rethink the conventional wisdom about the relationship
        between craft unionism and the possibilities for women workers' collective
        action. Women's labor history will never be the same."
        -- Ruth Milkman, author of Gender at Work: The Dynamics of Job
        Segregation by Sex during World War II
