About the Author:

Anne Loftis is a journalist and researcher and the coauthor of The Great Betrayal: The Evacuation of the Japanese-Americans During World War II and A Long Time Coming: The Struggle to Unionize America’s Farm Workers and author of California--Where the Twain Did Meet. She lives in Palo Alto, California.

Review:

"Witnesses to the Struggle is a wonderful book, beautifully written and must read for labor, ethnic, economic, western, and social/cultural historians, and for those who treasure Americana." —Choice

“The 1930s were a time, as [John] Steinbeck put it, when a tremendous amount of human drama unfolded for artists, writers and photographers to record. Loftis has captured the sense of drive and urgency that was felt then, both by the labor organizers and those recording the events.” —Palo Alto Weekly
