""In The Farmworkers' Journey, Ann Lopez provides a very readable account of the human instinct for survival associated with placing agriculture products on the tables of U.S. residents. Her years of scholarly research conducted living among farmworker families provides a firsthand account of the trials, tribulations, health and social relationships of people that keep them forever attached to the soil in both the U.S. and Mexico. Her revelation of how agribusiness is subsidized by the sacrifices of farmworker families should substantially moderate the hysterical voices that mitigate the reasoning needed to address the undocumented issue as behooves a democracy.""⿿J. V. Martinez, federal government executive, and a founder of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) ""This book tells a powerful and moving story of lives affected by agricultural and trade policies, migration, and the dehumanization of farm workers. The text is an eye-opening blend of academic research and testimonials of the people directly touched by the powerful market forces that have been unleashed by trade liberalization. Lopez brings together different analytical dimensions that are normally treated separately, moving through these dimensions with an ease indicative of her extraordinary talent and expertise.""⿿Alejandro Nadal, Science, Technology and Development Program, El Colegio de México
