9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Carlos Marentes on January 28, 2000
Format: Paperback
Thanks to author Calavita, American society may remember the forgotten braceros, the close to 5 million Mexicans who came to this country between 1942 and 1964 to feed us all during and after WWII. The contribution made by the braceros should be recognized as we embark in the new millennium. Get the book and bring justice for the braceros.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a welcome republication of an excellent law and society classic. Based on creative and careful analysis of original archival and interview data, Calavita's study explores an important and often misunderstood period of immigration policy in the U.S., including its poltical and cultural underpinings. One of the best studies of the growing U.S. administrative state "in action". This is a book that should be widely assigned in law schools and in college classes on administrative law, immigration politics, and "law and society" studies generally.
