The narrative of Corona's work as a Mexican American labor organizer reflects some five decades of struggles, setbacks, and successes. Beginning with the union movement of the 1930s, Corona traces his experience in organizing workers and communities as they confronted large corporate interests backed by the government agenices that served them. The uphill battle to win economic and political recognition is recounted in a straightforward manner, free of rancor. Indeed, Corona's model for success is founded on cooperation, ethnic pride of accomplishment, and optimistic determination. As an oral history conducted by Garcia (the result is billed as a collaborative autobiography), the story conveys a sense of the "collective self"--a testimonial of one member of a community. Recommended for collections emphasizing labor history and Chicano studies.- Charles E. Perry, East Central Univ., Ada, Okla.
