The Triangle Fire A Brief History with Documents, 2 edition

Review :

Readers that want to read about the Triangle Fire, but don't want a longer book like Stein's or Von Drehle's should read Argersinger's book. The first 36 pages sum up the 1909 shirtwaist strike, the fire, and the trial afterward. The second part of the book, which is less than 100 pages, contains primary sources in the same chronological order Argersinger describes in part one. The author has carefully selected useful primary sources and each one has a relevant introduction. It may be a short book, but it packs a punch with the information it contains.
