Synopsis: Longman is proud to publish the Library of American Biography series, offering ideal reading for introductory and upper-level courses in United States history. These concise biographies focus on individuals whose actions and ideas greatly influenced American history and relate the lives of the subjects to the issues and events of their times. Under new series editor Mark C. Carnes, the Library of American Biography series is being revised and updated with todays students in mind. All volumes are now offered at a lower price, and each new volume includes Study and Discussion Questions, which encourage readers to reflect on the role of the profiled individual in shaping American History. Dan La Botzs biography of Cesar Chavez introduces students to one of the great labor and civil rights leaders in the history of the United States. Incorporating the latest scholarship, Cesar Chavez and la Causa brings students face-to-face with a man who, like Martin Luther King Jr., used his courage and faith to inspire a generation of Mexican Americans - and millions of other Americans - to meet their problems not with violence but with a peaceful stand for social justice. Students will learn the history of, in Chavezs words, the revolution of the poor seeking bread and justice. Book jacket.
