Very Good- 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. 276 pages, illustrated. "Between 1870 and 1942 successive generations of Asian immigrants and Asian Americans formed the predominant body of workers in the Pacific Coast canned-salmon industry-mostly Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino. This study traces the shifts in the ethnic and gender composition of the cannery labor market and examines how the workers' creation of work cultures and social communities allowed them to cope with difficult conditions. The author shows the workers as people who, while enduring oppressive restrictions, continually attempted to shape their won lives." VERY GOOD-SOFTCOVER, with 10 pages of yellow marker underlining and margin notes.
