From the PublisherThe events that occurred in Homestead, Pa. in 1892 shaped labor relations and impacted the experience of the next two generations who worked on the factory floors and walked the picket lines. This readable history provides the context for understanding the strike and gives voice to the individuals whose decisions determined its outcome.

The Homestead lockout and strike forever changed the landscape of American labor relations. While it is often the violence of the day that brings people to the story, the real narrative is one that was years, if not decades in the making. It is this vitally important "back story," the lead up to the battle and its aftermath, as well as the lessons of the day that are so well presented by Dr. Kahan. He allows the reader to wrap their arms around the facts and to grasp the true context of the events that, to this day, still have a lasting impact on our culture.
