The Fight For Time

Migrant Day Laborers and the Politics of Precarity

Paul Apostolidis

Studies in Subaltern Latina/o Politics

  • A rare and finely wrought combination of rigorous reflection on critical theory with systematic empirical field research
  • A new, original, and self-reflective take on how to do critical theory and social research from within contexts of political engagement (i.e., as a politically engaged scholar)
  • An investigation of an under-examined and under-theorized force within contemporary immigrant rights and alternative-labor activism: worker centers and the day labor organizing network
  • A contribution to the rapidly growing field of "comparative political theory," through the book's critical examination and adaptation of key concepts in Paulo Freire's popular-education theory
