Description

"After their father lost one of Cuba's great sugar fortunes to Castro's revolution, Alfy and Pepe Fanjul built a new empire in Florida, importing cheap Jamaican labor to do the brutal, dangerous work of sugarcane harvesting, and wielding ever more political power in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., In 1989, outraged by what he calls "modern-day slavery,"a crusading 37-year-old lawyer named Edward Tuddenham took them to court, spawning four ongoing class-action suits on behalf of 20,000 former workers. Marie Brenner investigates an epic legal war that pits the Fanjuls' American Dream against the nightmare of migrant labor."
