TRIANGLE: The Fire That Changed America
Dave Von Drehle
The book titled Triangle: The Fire that Changed America is about a case that had come to see in the shape of fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York in March 1911. The book is about that case where the factory claimed that the lives of 146 individuals including males and females with a huge number of young women are blazed by the fire in the factory in only 30 minutes.
Based on the facts and figures as well as other relevant information about the case and situation are the sources and shreds of evidence that strengthen the argument presented by the author in his book titled Triangle: The Fire that Changed America. the book and argument of the author can be considered as strong because both the book and argument presented almost cover every aspect of the case “largest industrial disaster” ever happened in the history of America and New York City. The argument given by the author of the book says that this largest industrial disaster has changed even the entire course of politics of the region and country as well as amended the entire system and policies of labor relations and this is one of the reasons because of that the book has been written.
Despite, the author is stating in his book that the disaster was a killing and unstoppable case because it spread in the factor within few minutes while everyone in the city and out of the factor in the horror as the workers of the factory were jumping to their deaths while it was the actual scene and reality that the author present through his book about the disaster and this is considered as the major point of the author’s work (book).
Supporting the Argument
There are more than a few things that can be taken to support the argument of Dave Von Drehle. As mentioned above, the author of the book “Triangle: The Fire that Changed America” is based on strong facts, information, and analysis about the case of disaster, the author supported his argument in the book by gathering every possible information about the case while analyzing that information to catch up the facts.
Additionally, the author supported his argument by providing even the entire scene of the disaster. The scene of the disaster has been presented in a way that makes the reader like watching the scene him/herself. An example of it is the author very clearly states the number of individuals (workers) blazed by the fire, duration the spread in, floors that impacted the most, and how the workers were jumping from the building.
In terms of sources used by the author, both primary and secondary sources and data from them have been used. For the purpose, the author has gathered survey to gather primary data about the case while have used information mostly from agency reports and other news articles (quotes has been added).
Evaluation and Conclusion
The book “Triangle: The Fire that Changed America” can be found almost an incredible piece of work for every student who is concerned to know about the worst happening ever faced by united states. The book and author’s argument convinced me because; first, it is highly a fact-based study and work done the second is the argument has been presented in a novelist manner than as a historian that draws the audience in the different scene if the book. Concisely, the book can be found hugely appropriate to the students of two fields; one is students who study History and the second is the students who study Business and Corporate Management.
This is the valued book for those students because it reveals history on one side while it briefly elaborates on how and why the management and corporate strategies and policies especially about labor and human resource got changed.
