After the Smoke Clears takes readers into Homestead and Braddock, Pennsylvania; Lewiston, Maine; Matewan, West Virginia; and Flint, Michigan to focus on the strife caused by the departure of industry. Again and again, men and women relate how the blows to their sense of self and sense of community were more hurtful than the economic damage. Through words and photographs, Steve Mellon explores the relationship between work, loss, and identity, and offers a cautionary tale on the hidden costs of economic policies and business decisions made by multinational corporations to abandon the small towns that made them strong.
