Tells the story of Monessen, one of Pennsylvania’s industrial towns, & of the people who labored there. The study is set within the framework of industrial growth & decline. In Monessen’s relatively brief history (1898-1980), we can perceive in capsule form many of the social & economic developments that swept through Pennsylvania & the American northeast from the turn of the century to contemporary times as industrial forces multiplied & then waned. This book is essentially an attempt to fuse academic & community history. The testifiers are the main historical actors & they are both the observers & the observed. The introductory essays at the beginning of each section place the comments of the individuals in perspective. Illustrations.
