Summary
Narrative of farm worker and activist focusing on the 1970s Calexico area.
Part memoir, part informed commentary on farm labor, the U.S. labor movement, and the political economy of agriculture, Lettuce Wars is a lively account written from the perspective of the fields. Neuburger portrays the people he encountered - immigrant workers, fellow radicals, company bosses, cops and goons - vividly and indelibly, lending a human aspect to the conflict between capital and labor as it played out in the fields of California.--Publisher's decription.
