Synopsis: Chronicles the rise and fall of American steel by focusing on the fateful decisions made at the world's once largest steel mill at Sparrows Point, Maryland, as corporate leaders became more interested in their own security and enrichment than in employees, community, or innovative technology.

Review: "Brilliant... makes a convincing case that real people, specifically the top executives at the biggest steel corporations, helped bring their industry to ruin. Reutter pored over a century's worth of documents, interviewed more than a hundred former managers and workers and then organized this mass of material into a gripping, tragic story." Chicago Tribune "The strength of this book is Reutter's wonderful social and economic history of the community.... This is another side of the story of American steel, the human side, and it has much to teach." Fortune"
