The Chicken Trail: Following Workers, Migrants, and Corporations across the Americas

Altha J. Carey, Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of North Carolina, reviews The Chicken Trail: Following Workers, Migrants, and Corporations across the Americas. The book examines globalization through a single-food commodity, chicken. It demonstrates labor manipulation and immigration policies intended to benefit poultry giants insourced Mexicans as labor at the expense of African-American unemployment in the South and destruction of small-scale chicken production and rural lifestyles in Mexico.
