About the Author:

DAVID SOBEL is a labour historian and technology specialist, who has conducted trade union studies of economic and technological change in various industries.

Review:

"...tells the bittersweet story behind the rise and fall of one of this city's oldest companies." (Mike Filey Toronto Sun)

"[The authors have gone well beyond mere statistics with this fascinating account.
Is an evocatively written, meticulously researched book.
More than just a standard history text coldly detailing the rise and fall of an industry.
The book, aided by a wealth of pictures of the last days of the plant's operation, touches on virtually all aspects of Inglis's storied life.
A must-read for anyone interested in one of the most important chapters in Canada's manufacturing economy - brimming with life from start to finish." (Geoff Dale Labour Times)
