Editorial Reviews


"A finely crafted analysis of Mexicans at the heart of American industry."--George J. Sanchez, "Journal of American History

From the Inside Flap

"A well-documented and persuasive description of the experiences and aspirations of the thousands of Mexicans who migrated to the Midwest in search of employment between the First World War and the Great Depression of the 1930s."—David Montgomery, Yale University

"An important contribution to a small but rapidly expanding historical literature that documents the variety and complexity of the Mexican experience in the United States. . . . Vargas not only illuminates an aspect of that experience that has been little appreciated and understood by students of Chicano history, but also offers compelling evidence that bringing Mexican workers into full view requires scholars to look through the prism of class as well as the prism of ethnicity. . . . A fine book that is certain to inform and challenge ethnic and labor historians alike."--Clete Daniel, Industrial and Labor Relations
