Epigraph
Dedication
TO JIM DRAKE OF THE FARMWORKERS[:]

One of the more recent of a number of people I have been fortunate to know—my parents, Walter Bouman, Jim Cassens, Sharon Hull, and others—who have prodded me to confront the not-so-pretty parts of myself and of the world, stimulated me to want to be part of changing both, and challenged me to live a life that is honest and helpful.
