Strawberry Fields Politics, Class, and Work in California Agriculture by Miriam J. Wells

Strawberry Fields Politics, Class, and Work in California Agriculture

Part of the The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues Series


Strawberry Fields Politics, Class, and Work in California Agriculture by Miriam J. Wells


This book exemplifies salutary trends in anthropology: practice theory, respect for ethnography in the face of the inadequacy of one-dimensional theoretical abstraction, and the importance of time depth. You may learn more than you ever wanted to about strawberries in California, but you will understand it and that will help you understand other phenomena. -E. Paul Durrenberger, University of Iowa, American Anthropologist, Vol. 99, No. 2, June 1997

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
