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 fanatacism. Caught up in this 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.
