One of my favorite books on the steel industry. After launching into a basic history of steel making, the author delves into why Sparrows Point in Baltimore was one of the biggest integrated steel plants in the US and then to its decline into a big rusting pile outside of Baltimore's glittering Inner Harbor today. A good read of a sad tale.
