The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire: Its Legacy of Labor Rights (Google eBook)
History is shaped by events and people. Through studying history we come to understand how things change, learn to grasp the factors that cause this change, and begin to understand what parts of society remain constant despite change. Each title in Perspectives On investigates an historical event and includes, with the help of primary sources such as eyewitness accounts and commentary, differing viewpoints of each event. Factors leading up to the event, and the event's effect on the culture and people at that time, will be explored, as well as the event's lasting effects and historical significance.
