Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Kirsch
If you really want to know what succeeds in sales and the American way of doing business, put down Lee Iacocca's Talking Straight and Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal and pick up a copy of John P. Hoerr's And the Wolf Finally Came.
Los Angeles Times Book Review
Donald L. Miller
A deeply moving account…of the most spectacular industrial collapse of modern times.
Philadelphia Inquirer
Lacy Hunt
[Hoerr's] history has far—reaching implications. It's a base from which to draw broad conclusions about labor management relations and the future of unions.
USA Today
From the Publisher
"A fascinating account of USX's turnabout, during the '70s and '80s, from the union's staunchest ally to its most intransigent foe, and the steelworkers' struggle to redefine their place in a divided industry." 
New York Times Book Review

"An enormous labor of love, John Hoerr's book comprehensively chronicles a national tragedy." 
The Nation

"One of the most important books on labor or business to appear in recent times."
Choice

"Hoerr's exhaustive study of the decline of the steel industry, particularly in the Monongahela Valley, is essential reading."
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
