    Introduction: "Worth risking your life?" -- "We are field workers": embodied anthropology of migration -- Segregation on the farm: ethnic hierarchies at work -- "How the poor suffer": embodying the violence continuum -- "Doctors don't know anything": the clinical gaze in the field of migrant health -- "Because they're lower to the ground": naturalizing social suffering -- Conclusion: change, pragmatic solidarity, and beyond.
    "Based on five years of research in the field (including berry-picking and traveling with migrants back and forth from Oaxaca up the West Coast), Holmes, an anthropologist and MD in the mold of Paul Farmer and Didier Fassin, uncovers how market forces, anti-immigrant sentiment, and racism undermine health and health care."--From publisher description.
