Summary:
The Great  Industrial War, a comprehensive assessment of how class has been interpreted by the media in American history, documents the rise and fall of a frightening concept: industrial war. Troy Rondinone examines how the mainstream press along with the writings of a select group of influential reformers and politicians framed strike news, explores the influence of historical experience on popular perceptions of social order and class conflict, and provides a reinterpretation of the origins and meaning of the Taft-Hartley Act and the industrial relations regime it supported.
