Mexican Workers and American Dreams: Immigration, Repatriation, and California Farm Labor, 1900-1939

New Brunswick, N.J. Rutgers University Press, 1994. Paperback. xi, [3], 197, [3] p.: illustrations, tables; 23 cm. Paperback. In the early 20th century, over a million Mexican workers came into the United States, primarily to work in agriculture in the southwestern states. The author examines that process as well as the economic pressure in the 1930s that resulted in the American government sending half a million immigrants and some American citizens to Mexico. "Immigration and repatriation both invigorated and disrupted the lives of Mexicans and Mexican Americans, as well as the lives of other ethnic groups in the United States." -- Introduction. In Very Good Condition: former owner's name on first (blank) page; ink underlining on one page; otherwise, clean and tight. Very Good. Item #008125
