About this title


García explores the relationship of class, race, and labor in El Paso, documenting  the evolution of work, housing, education, politics, and culture in the Mexican community. Desert Immigrants makes a significant contribution not only to Chicano and Mexican history, but to the history of immigration and labor and urban studies as well.

From the Back Cover:

'The book is a major contribution- the product of serious research, competently written, and almost entirely free of partisan emotion.' -C.L. Sonnichsen, Journal of Arizona History
