Mexican-American and Mexican National Farm Workers: A Literature Review.
Miller, Michael V.
This paper is concerned with the scholarly treatment accorded to Mexican American and Mexican National farm workers by historical, legal, social work, and social science journals. Only those articles published after the arbitrary date of 1960 are reviewed due to space and time limitations. Works published since then are briefly summarized and evaluated in light of the contributions made toward the explication and understanding of the topic. The 29 articles are classified under 4 categories: (1) migrant farm workers, (2) the Bracero Program, (3) alien workers -- "wetbacks" and commuters, and (4) labor unionization. These articles are reviewed according to category, chronological relevance, and level of inclusiveness or abstraction. The paper concludes with some comments and suggestions pertaining to problems which appear to warrant future research consideration. (NQ)
