About the Author
Christian O. Paiz is assistant professor of comparative ethnic studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
Reviews
Paiz goes beyond the familiar names of Chavez and Huerta to challenge how scholars and the general public approach the United Farm Workers as a historical subject. . . . By focusing on these workers, Strikers of Coachella not only tells the story of the UFW from below; the book also argues that the contributions of these rank-and-file members drove the success of the union."--The Nation
If Christian O. Paiz's new book, The Strikers of Coachella, is any indication, UFW historiography might be on the cusp of entering into newer, more productive territory. . . . Indeed, the struggles of the 'rank-and-file' highlighted in this empathetic, well-researched, and highly readable study will only continue. . . . [A] must-read for scholars of labor, activism, and farmworker histories."-H-Environment
