This is surely one of the most important contributions to the social justice literature exposing farmworker injustice at all levels. Ann L pez, Executive Director, Center for Farmworker Families; author, The Farmworkers' Journey "In the noble tradition of narratives of protest and witness, this historical work is relevant and timely. It forces us to cast a critical eye on our American democracy, where the rights of countless workers are trampled upon by those with political and economic power.
On one level, it is a political memoir of a young radical's decade of immersion in the world of farmworkers--their work, their lives, and their struggles for union representation. On another level, Neuburger offers a history of the successes of the Farm Workers Union and its later degeneration.
It's the story of Neuburger's real life in a notoriously hardscrabble labor market, one that seemed like a vestige a generation ago but now serves as the default model in a new era of global neoliberalism. If you've ever felt that we're all 'casual labor' now, this is the book for you.
Most of all, Neuburger reminds us of what it felt like to be young and believe in Revolution. Bruce Neuburger is a former farmworker, longtime radical political activist, GI organizer, movement newspaper writer and editor, cab driver, and, for the past twenty-five years, adult school and community college teacher.
