Acknowledgments

This is not a technical study of steel's economic decline. Rather, this book grew out of the author's notion that analysis of the economic and political activities of the steel industry might shed some light on the structure and exercise of power in the United States and the possibility of attaining higher levels of democracy. The author's interest in viewing the steel industry as a laboratory in which to raise questions about power and democratic direction was nurtured by a number of people, all of whom have somehow contributed to this work. Robert Engler's graduate seminar helped me appreciate the significance of economic power in the political process. My friend, Sid Plotkin, read parts of this manuscript, and his incisive comments were invaluable. Former colleagues, Mike Urban and Steve Andors, made a number of suggestions and provided support throughout. And, of course, my wife Louise's assistance in typing and proofreading the manuscript is only transcended by her support and affection. Finally, the people at Praeger were efficient and gracious throughout. Needless to say, all errors and misinterpretations are the responsibility of the author.
