Ernesto Galarza Bibliography

Man of Fire

Selected Writings

Ernesto Galarza, Edited by Armando Ibarra and Rodolfo D. Torres

Publication Year: 2013

Activist, labor scholar, and organizer Ernesto Galarza (1905 - 1984) was a leading advocate for Mexican Americans and one of the most important Mexican American scholars and activists after World War II. This volume gathers Galarza's key writings, reflecting an intellectual rigor, conceptual clarity, and a constructive concern for the working class in the face of America's growing influence over Mexico's economic system. Including excerpts from some of Galarza's indispensable books Barrio Boy and Merchants of Labor: The Mexican Bracero Story as well as articles, conference papers, interviews, and previously unpublished reports, the writings in this collection cover such timely subjects as community development, immigration politics and the Bracero Program, the Chicano movement, Mexican American education, ethnic relations, and U.S.-Mexico relations.
