Appalachian restructuring in historical perspective : coal, culture and social change in West Virginia

Special issue : The economic restructuring of older industrial areas

Auteur :
LEWIS, R. L.

Description :
The focus is on the role of the coal industry in transforming life and labour in this region. The history of the coal industry is characterised by a series of struggles for control. This industry and the state itself was transformed into a peripheral economic and political appendage of the nation's industrial and financial centres. Industry altered life and labour, but farming persisted in a rural countryside.
