Steel Phoenix recounts the downfall of 'Big Steel' in America and the emergence of a new steel industry from the ashes of the old. Hall reveals how the death of the traditional steel industry devastated cities such as Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Youngstown.

From the Back Cover:

Steel Phoenix: The Fall and Rise of the U.S. Steel Industry is a remarkable story. Christopher Hall recounts the great downfall of "Big Steel" in America and the emergence of a new, reinvented steel industry from the ashes of the old. Beginning with the failures of Big Steel to respond to a changing world, Christopher Hall analyzes the powers and drives behind this "most basic" of industries, revealing how the "Rust Belt" of the 1970s and 1980s was created and how the death of the traditional steel industry devastated cities such as Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Youngstown. Hall then examines how pioneering entrepreneurs and engineers rebuilt the industry by recycling large supplies of scrap steel, giving way to a minimill industry that ultimately saved what was left of the old Big Steel mills.

From Publishers Weekly:

Beset by plant closings and layoffs in the early 1980s, the U.S. steel industry became a symbol of the failure of America to compete with Japanese, European or Third World manufacturers. How U.S. steelmakers pulled themselves back from the brink is elucidated in Hall's absorbing chronicle. Pulling no punches, the author, a consultant in the metals and transportation industries, describes how what he calls Big Steel's insular, arrogant, almost xenophobic corporate culture underwent a drastic transformation after an influx of inexpensive imports shook the oligopoly of American steel giants. Hall pinpoints many factors that contributed to the turnaround, including the adoption of scrap-metal recycling; the emergence of independent, electric-furnace "minimills" and specialty steel companies; a decline in unionism accompanied by a increasingly participatory management styles; a new internationalist market orientation; and a steady reduction in steelmaking costs. While Hall's painstaking analysis may bore the general reader interested in the human side of steel's traumatic changes, his survey of trends, companies, processes and new technologies makes this an authoritative resource.
