“Labor and Legality: An Ethnography of a Mexican Immigrant Network” by Ruth Gomberg-Muñoz

Set in and around “Il Vino,” a restaurant that could stand in for many places that employ undocumented workers, Labor and Legality reveals the faces behind the war being waged over “illegal aliens” in America. She also reviews the political and historical circumstances of undocumented migration, with an emphasis on post socioeconomic and political conditions in the United States and Mexico.


Labor and Legality is one of several volumes in the Issues of Globalization: Case Studies in Contemporary Anthropology series, which examines the experiences of individual communities in our contemporary world. Each volume offers a brief and engaging exploration of a particular issue arising from globalization and its cultural, political, and economic effects on certain peoples or groups. Ideal for introductory anthropology courses-and as supplements for a variety of upper-level courses-these texts seamlessly combine portraits of an interconnected and globalized world with narratives that emphasize the agency of their subjects.
