Coal: A Memoir and Critique (Hardback)Duane Lockard (author)
Hardback Published: 30/09/1998
- Not available
Duane Lockard's "Coal" is at once a historical account of mining -- the explosions, slate falls, black lung, and floods -- and a memoir of one family's involvement in it. Four generations of his family have worked in the mines, including Lockard himself, and his book interweaves family letters and diaries with firsthand interviews and literature on the industry to evoke a century's worth of mining and coal town life. Entwined in the personal story of this coal miner's son who became a Princeton political scientist is Lockard's critique of how the coal industry has behaved as a corporate citizen and how it exemplifies corporate power in American life.
