The Tortilla Factory Book Description :

Written with raw humor and painted in both reality and illusion, The Tortilla Factory is an original work completely outside of today's cookie-cutter prose. Weaving magnificent, interlocking threads of alcohol abuse, womanizing and mental health breakdown, The Tortilla Factory takes the reader down a road in which many are probably not familiar with. From drunken and unruly folly to the vivid insanity of the misfiring mind, each page fills the imagination with a ready dose of humor, sadness and confusion. The Tortilla Factory is written in the straightforward and blunt manner of a Charles Bukowski, flavored with images disturbing enough for those fans of Clive Barker. The Tortilla Factory will offend some, tickle some, but by and large it'll give the...

Transnational Tortillas Book Description :

This book looks at the flip side of globalization: How does a company from the Global South behave differently when it also produces in the Global North? A Mexican tortilla company, "Tortimundo," has two production facilities within a hundred miles of each other, but on different sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. The workers at the two factories produce the same product with the same technology, but have significantly different work realities. This "global factory" gives Carolina Bank Muñoz an ideal opportunity to reveal how management regimes and company policy on each side of the border apply different strategies to exploit their respective workforces' vulnerabilities. The author's in-depth ethnographic fieldwork shows that the U.S. factory is char...
