Beyond the Fields: César Chávez, the UFW, and the Struggle for Justice in the 21st Century
"Beyond the Fields reveals the untold story of how the legacy of César Chávez- and the strategies and tactics of the UFW in its heyday- continue to set the course for today's social justice movement. It also traces for the first time how UFW alumnni have played leading roles in those movements.
Beyond the Fields follows in the tradition of Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, by providing little known history about the UFW, its organizing tactics and its profound legacy on political activism in America over the past four decades."
Chris Tiedemann, Talking Union.
