Triangle: The Fire That Changed America



Bibliographic notes for my 2016 new years reading resolution 



Dave Von Drehle, Triangle: The Fire That Changed America


 Dave Von Drehle’s, Triangle: The Fire That Changed America, captivates his reader with a social history of New York’s late nineteenth and early twentieth century politics, labor movement, and the disaster that amalgamated a structural change in labor law and workers rights. This book is not for the faint of heart but tells the grim story of the New York’s garment workers in a narrative that is exquisitely detailed. I highly recommend it.
