Labor leader, social justice advocate, Chicano leader, and humanitarian are only some of the multifaceted renderings of Cesar Chavez. Ilan Stavans has compiled essays and first-person narratives that capture the multiple dimensions of this storied figure. To that end, Stavans's collection of timely articles separates fact from fiction, or as he puts it the objective is the opposite of hagiography. Broken into two sections, Cesar Chavez explores a variety of topics central to understanding the actual person instead of a shadowy apparition. The first part, Considerations offers critical assessments of Chavez's life that utilize different approaches to understanding his life, including cultural studies critiques, historical narrative that provide invaluable context, and even eulogies following his untimely death. The second section, Voices includes personal reflections on Chavez's life that explore his religiosity, his role as an everyman, and the decline of the United Farm Workers union. The title is certain to assist readers in better comprehending this groundbreaking labor leader.
