              <![CDATA[American agriculture employs some 2.5 million workers during a typical year, most for fewer than six months. Three fourths of these farm workers are immigrants, half are unauthorized, and most will leave seasonal farm work within a decade. What do these statistics mean f...or farmers, for laborers, for rural America?This book addresses the question by reviewing what is happening on farms and in the towns and cities where immigrant farm workers settle with their families. Philip Martin finds that the business-labor model that has evolved in rural America is neither desirable nor sustainable. He proposes regularizing U.S. farm workers and rationalizing the farm labor market, an approach that will help American farmers stay globally competitive while also improving conditions for farm workers.]]>

              Through these varied essays on politics, ethics, music, race, and culture Philip Martin admits a minor obsession with what he calls the American Frolic - the essential lack of seriousness with which many of us approach the questions inherent in living in a free society. He observ...es that Americans have been conditioned to react, not to consider; that while we are very good at ripostes and snappy comebacks, at cracking wise and looking smart, we often fail to authentically engage the issues with which we pretend to be most concerned. We inadvertently talk past one another, he says, resorting to cant and partisan boilerplate. In the essays presented in The Shortstop's Son, Philip Martin rigorously resists easy labels and rote ideological truths. He pursues more subtle meanings with a common-sense lucidity and a fundamental compassion for humanity. Whether writing about the mythos built upon Bonnie and Clyde's bullet-ridden Ford or the ignoble death and burial of blues legend Blind Lemon Jefferson, Martin strikes the chord that both moves and informs.
