Power and Control in the Imperial Valley

Power and Control in the Imperial Valley Nature, Agribusiness, and Workers on the California Borderland, 1900-1940 Benny J. Andres

Power and Control in the Imperial Valley examines the evolution of irrigated farming in the Imperial-Mexicali Valley, an arid desert straddling the California-Baja California border, bisected by the international boundary line. Benny Andres analyzes and traces the bi-national competition over the Colorado River, the capitalistic transformation of nature for industrial agriculture, the creation of a racialized, hierarchical agricultural labor force, and the repression of social and labor dissenters.
