Summary of In Dubious Battle Summary of In Dubious Battle Reviews for In Dubious Battle An Excerpt from In Dubious Battle
Unabridged, 9 CDs, 10 hours"Dramatically intense, beautifully written. It is the real thing; it has a vigor of sheer storytelling that may sweep away many prejudices."
Read by Tom Stechschulte
A riveting novel of labor strife and apocalyptic violence that maps the frontier where the masses become a mob
At once a relentlessly fast-paced, admirably observed novel of social unrest and the story of a young man's struggle for identity, In Dubious Battle is set in the California apple country, where a strike by migrant workers against rapacious landowners spirals out of control, as principled defiance metamorphoses into blind fanaticism. Caught in the upheaval is Jim Nolan, a once aimless man who finds himself in the course of the strike, briefly becomes its leader, and is ultimately crushed in its service.
