WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
Last night WMNF aired the first half of our interview with David Nasaw, author of â€œAndrew Carnegie,â€ about his award-winning biography of one of the most successful American businessmen of all time.
Tonight we air the second part of the interview. Nasawâ€™s book won the 2007 New York Historical Society American Book Prize earlier this year, and was named as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Biography.
WMNF asked Nasaw about Andrew Carnegieâ€™s relationship with his steel workers, and specifically the Homestead Strike of 1892, one of the most serious labor disputes in U.S. history.
