THE HAMLET FIRE: A Tragic Story of Cheap Food, Cheap Government, and Cheap Lives
In September, 1991, a chicken processing factory in Hamlet, North Carolina, burst into flames. Twenty-five people perished behind the plant's bolted doors. The author gives a disturbing social autopsy of a town, a nation, and a time that shows how cheap labor, cheap government, and cheap food came together in a way that was bound for tragedy.
