Steel and Steelworkers is a fascinating account of the forces that shaped Pittsburgh, big business, and labor through the city's rapid industrialization in the mid-nineteenth century, its lengthy era of industrial maturity, its precipitous deindustrialization toward the end of the twentieth century, and its reinvention from hell with the lid off to America's most livable (post-industrial) city. Hinshaw examined a wide variety of company, union, and government documents, oral histories, and newspapers to reconstruct the steel industry and the efforts of labor, business, and government to refashion it. A compelling report of industrialization and deindustrialization, in which questions of organization, power, and politics prove as important as economics, Steel and Steelworkers shows the ways in which big business and labor helped determine the fate of steel and Pittsburgh.About the Author:
John Hinshaw is Assistant Professor of History at Lebanon Valley College. He is the coeditor, with Paul LeBlanc, of U.S. Labor in the Twentieth Century: Studies in Working-Class Struggles and Insurgency and, with Peter Stearns, of ABC-CLIO World History Companion to the Industrial Revolution.
