American manufacturing is on life support—at least, that's what most people think. The exodus of jobs to China and other foreign markets is irreversible, and anything that is built here requires specialized skills the average worker couldn't hope to gain. Not so, says Dan DiMicco, chairman and former CEO of Nucor, America's largest steel company. He not only revived a major US manufacturing firm during a recession, but helped galvanize the flagging domestic steel industry when many of his competitors were in bankruptcy or headed overseas. In American Made, he takes to task the politicians, academics, and political pundits who, he contends, are exacerbating fears and avoiding simple solutions for the sake of nothing more than their own careers, and contrasts them with the postwar leaders who rebuilt Europe and Japan, put a man on the moon, and kept communism at bay. We need leaders of such resolve today, he argues, who can tackle a broken job-creation engine by restoring manufacturing to its central role in the U.S. economy—and cease creating fictitious "service businesses" where jobs evaporate after a year or two, as in a Ponzi scheme. With his trademark bluntness, DiMicco tackles the false promise of green jobs and the hidden costs of outsourcing. Along the way, he shares the lessons he's learned about good leadership, crisis management, and the true meaning of innovation, and maps the road back to robust economic growth, middle-class prosperity, and American competitiveness.

If you’ve traveled the nation’s highways, flown into New York’s LaGuardia Airport, strolled San Antonio’s River Walk, or seen the Pacific Ocean from the Beach Chalet in San Francisco, you have experienced some part of the legacy of the Works Progress Administration (WPA)—one of the enduring cornerstones of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. When President Roosevelt took the oath of office in March 1933, he was facing a devastated nation. Four years into the Great Depression, a staggering 13 million American workers were jobless and many millions more of their family members were equally in need. Desperation ruled the land. What people wanted were jobs, not handouts: the pride of earning a paycheck; and in 1935, after a variety of temporary relief measures, a permanent nationwide jobs program was created. This was the Works Progress Administration, and it would forever change the physical landscape and the social policies of the United States. The WPA lasted for eight years, spent $11 billion, employed 8½ million men and women, and gave the country not only a renewed spirit but a fresh face. Under its colorful head, Harry Hopkins, the agency’s remarkable accomplishment was to combine the urgency of putting people back to work with its vision of physically rebuilding America. Its workers laid roads, erected dams, bridges, tunnels, and airports. They stocked rivers, made toys, sewed clothes, served millions of hot school lunches. When disasters struck, they were there by the thousands to rescue the stranded. And all across the country the WPA’s arts programs performed concerts, staged plays, painted murals, delighted children with circuses, created invaluable guidebooks. Even today, more than sixty years after the WPA ceased to exist, there is almost no area in America that does not bear some visible mark of its presence. Politically controversial, the WPA was staffed by passionate believers and hated by conservatives; its critics called its projects make-work and wags said it stood for We Piddle Around. The contrary was true. We have only to look about us today to discover its lasting presence.

What would the world look like if America were to reduce its role as a global leader in order to focus all its energies on solving its problems at home? And is America really in decline? Robert Kagan, New York Times best-selling author and one of the country’s most influential strategic thinkers, paints a vivid, alarming picture of what the world might look like if the United States were truly to let its influence wane. Although Kagan asserts that much of the current pessimism is misplaced, he warns that if America were indeed to commit “preemptive superpower suicide,” the world would see the return of war among rising nations as they jostle for power; the retreat of democracy around the world as Vladimir Putin’s Russia and authoritarian China acquire more clout; and the weakening of the global free-market economy, which the United States created and has supported for more than sixty years. We’ve seen this before—in the breakdown of the Roman Empire and the collapse of the European order in World War I. Potent, incisive, and engaging, The World America Made is a reminder that the American world order is worth preserving, and America dare not decline.

Can American Manufacturing Be Saved

This book details how manufacturing developed in America through the industrial revolution and labor movement, analyzes the impact of outsourcing offshore and our nation’s trade policies, looks at what various organizations are doing to try to help save American manufacturing, and what we can do as individuals from the perspective of business owners, employees, consumers, and voters to save American manufacturing. Author Michele NashHoff argues that we will not be able to save American manufacturing unless we develop a national manufacturing strategy and change our trade policies. She supports a “Buy American” policy, recommends preventing the sale of strategic U.S.owned companies to foreign companies, and enacting legislation to prevent corporations from avoiding income taxes by incorporating in a foreign country. The 2012 edition also describes the "Reshoring Initiative" and considers the reasons why companies are returning manufacturing back to America from Asia.

American Made Movie is the story of America being defined by the things that we make. Regardless of our status in the world's manufacturing total, there are millions of workers who can and will build more. It's a call to action for companies to fortify the middle class backbone of a country quickly losing its grip on world prominence. It's a cautionary tale to consumers who too often make purchasing decisions based on price without respect to the butterfly effect of those choices. It is also a warning to government and unions to look out for the best interest of their country and work together to create more jobs in the face of globalization. Finally, it's a story of creating a change in philosophy in just one company. If one company can be convinced that putting Americans back to work is, in fact, great for the bottom line, then who knows who many others will follow their lead. The livelihood of our country depends on getting back to basics and rebuilding the American Dream, using American workers.

A brief history of American workers from 1800-2000. Not primarily an institutional history, that is, a history of unions, although unions figure prominently where appropriate. For the most part, this is about the lives of ordinary workers, people like you and me, and how they struggled to build better lives for themselves in changing and often hostile circumstances. Dr. Eric Leif Davin has taught labor history at the University of Pittsburgh for more than 20 years and won the Eugene V. Debs Award for his writing on labor history.
