Mexican-Americans in the Southwest by Ernesto Galarza( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and Spanish and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With findings as presented in this 1969 book, a 2-year field study conducted by a 3-member team analyzed the economic, cultural, political, and educational conditions of Mexican Americans in the Southwest (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas) with some reference to braceros and the situation in Mexico. An overview of 8 geographic Mexican American groupings leads into a discussion of such topics as mobility, urbanization, the culture of poverty, educational disadvantagement, community infrastructure, and communication. Divisions within the minority group, situations creating cultural and political immobility, and problems in the administration of welfare programs are described and used as a backdrop for predictions that the Mexican American family will continue to need outside help and that the cost of social assistance will rise. A 23-point summary and an appendix containing 22 statistical tables on demography, education, and employment conclude the book. (Bo)

Merchants of labor : the Mexican bracero story : an account of the managed migration of Mexican farm workers in California 1942-1960 by Ernesto Galarza( Book )

17 editions published between 1964 and 1978 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of this study is the more or less seasonal influx of Mexican (bracero) laborers to work in agriculture in California between 1942 and 1960. The migration began as a joint effort between the governments of Mexico and the United States to ease the manpower shortage created by World War ii. Dire needs of these migrants, and their willingness to work for wages scorned by native Americans, made them an attractive labor pool for southwestern and western agriculture. The unorganized drift of bracero labor became a vast administered migration that unfortunately also gave rise to many problems. It led to corruption and to the exploitation of human beings on both sides of the border. Congressional attempts to end the program came under pressure from American employers and the Mexican government to extend it for additional periods of time. In this 6-part historical, political, sociological, and economic treatise, an analysis of the bracero system provides perspective but does not conclude the bracero story. (Ej)
