Dying For Work: Workers' Safety And Health In Twentieth-Century America (Interdisciplinary Studies In History)

This pathbreaking volume explores the history of occupational safety and health in America from the late nineteenth century to the 1950s. Thirteen essays tell a story of the exploitation of workers as measured by shortened lives, high disease rates, and painful injuries. Scholars from a variety of disciplines examine the history of protection and compensation for injured workers, state and federal involvement, controversies over the dangers of lead, and the three emblematic industrial diseases of this century―radium poisoning, asbestos-related diseases, and brown lung.
