Corporate Wasteland: The Landscape and Memory of Deindustrialization

Voorkant
Between the Lines, 8 dec. 2010 - 176 pagina's

Deindustrialization is not simply an economic process; it is also a social and cultural phenomenon. The rusting detritus of our industrial past-the wrecked halls of factories, abandoned machinery too large to remove, and now-useless infrastructures-has for decades been a part of the North American landscape. Through a unique blend of oral history, photographs, and interpretive essays, Corporate Wasteland†investigates this fascinating terrain and the phenomenon of its loss and rediscovery.
