Inside Bethlehem Steel: Reviewers' Comments
John Strohmeyer: “Inside Bethlehem Steel: The Last Quarter Century” is a permanent record produced by two insiders who saw Bethlehem at its peak and lived through its demise. It is an enlightening read for everyone concerned about the fate of big industry in America and a must addition to every library. History is treated so fleetingly these days. Television documentaries are nice but soon forgotten. Bette Kovach’s insightful perspective and the spectacular photographs of Peter Treiber constitute a work that will not be forgotten"
John Strohmeyer, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Crisis in Bethlehem: Big Steel’s Battle to Survive, was editor of The Bethlehem Globe-Times for 28 years.
Nancy Gravatt: “…Treiber…and Kovach have teamed up to create a visually stunning portrait… depicting the final decades of an iconic company that literally built our nation.”

Scott Robertson: “What this book does perhaps most successfully is retain the history and heritage of Bethlehem Steel, creating an image not of rusting, hulking, idle operations, but of a company, and an industry, that was pulsing with excitement, built on the backs of hard workers who gave their all, only to find little left for them at the end of 99 years.” Full Text

Ed Riccio: “The most stunning visual history I’ve ever seen. Peter Treiber captures the beauty and power of the steelmaking process and portrays it as fine art. Art that describes one of man’s most ennobling efforts, the creation of basic materials for the betterment of human life.”
