"Once the symbol of a robust steel industry and blue-collar economy, Youngstown, Ohio, and its famous Jeanette Blast Furnace have become key icons in the tragic tale of American deindustrialization. Sherry Lee Linkon and John Russo examine the inevitable tension between those discordant visions, which continue to exert great power over Steeltown's citizens as they struggle to redefine their lives."--Jacket.
