Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mooney (sociology, Univ. of Kentucky) and Majka (sociology, Univ. of Dayton) present a comprehensive account of organized efforts by farmers to strengthen their economic condition and by farm workers acting collectively to achieve more stable and productive employment. Taken into account are the way in which similarities in social class and ideology provided historical continuity to these movements. However, the detailed chapters on these developments-from Colonial times for farmers' movements and from the early years of this century for farm workers' efforts-are clotted with repetitive and convoluted writing and excessive detail that often obscure the argument. Suitable for academic libraries with agricultural and labor collections.-Harry Frumerman, formerly with Hunter Coll., CUNY
