9781935049647: Continuing La Causa: Organizing Labor in California’s Strawberry Fields (Latinos: Exploring Diversity and Change)

Gilbert Mireles explores the legendary United Farm Workers' campaign to organize laborers―predominantly Latino immigrants―in California's strawberry industry. Tracing the UFW's actions from the picking fields to the world of government offices and corporate boardrooms, Mireles shows how the very traits that made the union such a successful advocate for farm workers also inhibited the meaningful participation of those same workers in the union. His systematic analysis of one of the most influential social movements in the country points to troubling implications for the place of immigrants―and the role of civil society and participatory democracy―in US society.

About the Author:

Gilbert Felipe Mireles is associate professor of sociology at Whitman College.

Review:

[Provides] detailed history of how the UFW has changed over time, as well as a comprehensive analysis of the more recent struggles this organization has faced in the fields and the courtroom.... Students and academics alike will find this book to be quite compelling. (Julie C. Keller Rural Sociology)

Beautifully and meticulously chronicles an important campaign―not only to try to understand the ways in which it succeeded and failed, but also to mine it for broader lessons. (Hector Delgado, University of La Verne)

A solid case study with implications well beyond strawberry fields.

(April Linton Contemporary Sociology)
