Between 1942 and 1964, the United States and Mexican governments brought nearly five million rural Mexican residents to work on fields and railroads across the United States. In Abrazando el Espiritu, Dr. Ana Elizabeth Rosas brings women, children and their communities to bear on the Mexican labor that kept American farms and farmers thriving after World War II. Abrazando el Espiritu won the Theodore Saloutos Memorial award from the Immigration and Ethnic History Association. Dr. Rosas is an associate professor in the Departments of History and Chicano/Latino Studies at the University of California, Irvine. Her work focuses on Chicana/o history, comparative immigration history, gender studies, and oral history.
