Rusted Dreams: Hard Times in a Steel Community Paperback – June 8, 1988
From Library Journal
The larger consequences of the sharp decline of the American steel industry in the late 1970s and the 1980s are epitomized in the experience of a South Chicago neighborhood where two large steel mills shut down: mass unemployment and hardship; family tensions; deterioration of community institutions; decay of local businesses; and helplessness of business, political, and union leaders when confronted by the larger economic and political forces that had engulfed the industry. Bensman and Lynch believe that only a comprehensive strategy encompassing permanent import restrictions, industry modernization, and measures to widen the market for steel will save the industry and its workers. This is a perceptive and sympathetic account. Recommended for subject collections. Harry Frumerman, formerly with Economics Dept., Hunter Coll.,
