269pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Orange cloth covered boards with a black ink stamped title on the spine. Very good. The spine ends are gently bumped. Remainder mark in dark black pen on the bottom edge of the text block. There is a previous owner's blind stamp on the half title page. In a very good dust jacket, with light scratching to the surface. There is a very subtle damp stain at the foot of the jacket's spine.
From the dust jacket- "This is the story of immigrant copper workers and their attempts to organize at the turn of the century in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and El Paso, Texas. These Mexican and European laborers of widely varying backgrounds and languages had little social, economic, or political power. Yet they achieved some surprising successes in their struggles- all in the face of a racist society and the unbridled power of the mine owners."
