Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7^-10. Andrew Carnegie came from poor but proud linen weavers in Scotland who protested laws that favored the new industrial magnates when the Industrial Revolution threatened their craft. Carnegie expressed pride in his humble roots and always professed a sympathy for the workers' plight, yet when he became a powerful and fabulously wealthy steel captain, he oversaw ruthless strikebreaking and management tactics to suppress his workers. Meltzer portrays Carnegie as a complex personality--full of contradiction, guilt, and greed for power and money--eager to represent himself to the world as a beneficent and generous industrial leader, though in truth he "was a ruthless manager of his workmen." This fascinating portrait makes a lively read, with no attempt to gloss over or excuse the steelmaker's hard-driving tactics. Readers also get a good look at the times. An excellent title for U.S. history and biography collections. A note on sources supplements the text. --Anne O'Malley"
