The Mill is a unique and fascinating work that explores the social aspects of the American steel industry and blue-collar life. Featuring the oral histories of over 50 individuals, it is a close-up account of the lives of the workers who formed the backbone of Western Pennsylvania's once booming steel industry. It reveals the ideas, hopes, aspirations and shared experience of the Slavic, Mediterranean and Northern European immigrants and other workers, both men and women, at Jones and Laughlin Aliquippa Works, a mill that was once one of the largest steel plants in the world. The Mill is an important resource for those interested in 20th century labor relations, social history, ethnicity, and Slavic Studies. The study is also relevant to scholars of political science, anthropology, and women's studies.
