The purpose of this paper is to examine how capitalism produces and reproduces racial oppression, by examining the dynamics of one industry in one location:the garment industry in Los Angeles. The L. I plan to show how both groups are oppressed by the system, although differentially, by laying out the entire structure of relations in the industry, and the role of immigrants in it. In the course of describing the industry, I hope to demonstrate its excessive corruption at all levels,a corruption that is endemic to capitalism.

The idea of comparing Asian and Latino immigrant experiences is an inspired one, and the book is a model of scholarship and comparative studies. The book will be particularly useful for undergraduate courses on immigration, ethnic history, and public policy. This volume explores one niche, using original studies, and is thus able to build up a picture of jostling settlements and their interrelationship with earlier settlements locals. More than that, it also creates an approach from which other researchers could benefit by following up the various sociological themes of the niche.
