Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book although based on the life of a great man reads like a textbook full of facts. For the student of Chicano studies, this is a perfect read. For the curious and lover of biographies, like me it's not. Never-the-less, I can't really criticize the work that went into this book. It is worth a purchase..

I wasn't thrilled when my Chicano History Class had this book as well as five others listed on the reading list. However this assignment was the BEST book out of all of them! It was heart felt and touching in its very personal and informal method of describing one of the most influential times in political and socioeconomic history of Hispanic people. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It even helped me to decide that I would major in History of the Americas in college with an emphasis in Chicano History and Spanish!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I knew Bert. The father of immigrant rights. A great leader in the early Chicano movement, who has not gotten the recognition he deserves.
