Although the exploitation of Latino workers in many industries iswell known, pineros - Latino forest workers -toil largely in obscurity. Brinda Sarathy investigates how the USfederal government came to be one of the country's largestemployers of Latino labour, and documents pinero wages and workingconditions in comparison to those of white forest labourers. Pineroexploitation, Sarathy argues, is the product of an ongoing history ofinstitutionalized racism in the West. Overcoming this legacy depends onimproving the visibility and working conditions of pineros andproviding them with a stronger voice in immigration and forestrypolicy-making.

This is a scholar who cares deeply about her subject, writes with passion, and has a contribution to make in achieving social and environmental justice in Oregon forests. This is scholarship with a purpose, and the author is clear about the account's relevance to present-day policy issues.
