"Rosenblum writes with the verve of a good journalist and the empirical precision of a fine scholar. He is as deft at sketching brief portraits of key executives, union officials, and rank-and-file strikers as he is at untangling the legal skein in which the miners got fatally ensnared."-Michael Kazin, New York Times Book Review (reviewing the first edition)
"Copper Crucible is a powerful analysis of labour-management relations in the American mining industry during the 1980's. It is also a powerful exposition of the influence individuals play in those relationships. By examining the dispute from a number of perspectives, Rosenblum has ensured that influences such as gender and ethnicity are not obscured in the overall analysis of the events."-Harry Knowles, Journal of Industrial Relations (reviewing the first edition)
"Jonathan D. Rosenblum's history of this one strike reveals to us, in chapter and verse, the barbaric use of power by the corporate big boys. It is a stunning metaphor for labor's trouble today."-Studs Terkel
