Title: The Devil in Silicon Valley: Northern California, Race and Mexican Americans

ISBN : 0691092877

Publisher : Princeton University Press
Media : Hardcover
SKU MIX27-U31-9B-JAM9-25394

 

 
Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

This sweeping history explores the growing Latino presence in the United States over the past two hundred years. It also debunks common myths about Silicon Valley, one of the world's most influential but least-understood places. Far more than any label of the moment, the devil of racism has long been Silicon Valley's defining force, and Stephen Pitti argues that ethnic Mexicans - rather than computer programmers - should take centre stage in any contemporary discussion of the "new West." Pitti weaves together the experiences of disparate residents - early Spanish-Mexican settlers, Gold Rush miners, farmworkers transplanted from Texas, Chicano movement activists, and late-20th-century musicians - to offer a broad reevaluation of the American West. Based on dozens of oral histories as well as archival research, this book shows how San Jose, Santa Clara, and other northern California locales played a critical role in the ongoing development of Latino politics. This is a transnational history. In addition to considering the past efforts of immigrant and US-born miners, fruit cannery workers, and janitors at high-tech firms - many of whom retained strong ties to Mexico - Pitti describes the work of such well-known Valley residents as Cesar Chavez. He also chronicles the violent opposition ethnic Mexicans have faced in Santa Clara Valley. In the process, he reinterprets not only California history but the Latino political tradition and the story of American labour. The book follows California race relations from the Franciscan missions to the Gold Rush, from the New Almaden mine standoff to the Apple janitorial strike.
