Farm laborers and the new urban politics : bridging the urban-rural divide

Auteurs :
STAEHELI, L.A.

Description :
The provision of services to farm labor is examined as an extension of the new urban politics. Concern for farm workers on the urban-rural fringe (example of Boulder County) enhances understandings of local politics in three ways. It draws attention to the wide array of political agents operating at the local level. The role of scale in creating uneven development within metropolitan areas is highlighted. Attention to the politics of service provision for farm labor makes clear the need to re-evaluate urban-rural dichotomies and their role in shaping local politics.
