Explores the impact of technology on miners and mining operations during a crucial period in industrial history, the 1920s. The theme of the book is grounded in the belief that technology is not merely a question of inventions and engineering, and should not always be equated with social progress. Draws from interviews with retired miners and from archives. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
