Beyond Rust: Metropolitain Pittsburgh and the Fate of Industrial America by Allen Dietrich-Ward


Pittsburgh has become the model of a successful transition from an industrial past to a post-industrial present and future. Once the Steel City, it is now a seat of technological and bio-medical know-how and innovation. This new identity was given formal recognition on the world stage when the Obama administration selected it as the host site for the 2009 G-20 summit. How Pittsburgh accomplished this transition is the subject of Allen Dietrich-Ward's new book Beyond Rust.
