Product description


This book provides a vibrant portrait that demonstrates the variety of ways daily life has and is changing across the globe under the new economic rules of the game known as globalization. The achievement of this book is that it gives readers a front row seat to observe the ways that women in diverse circumstances cope, adapt, and strategize in response to and in resistance to a new macroeconomic regime. Detailed accounts such as these are precisely what are needed as policymakers and academics work to formulate remedies to offset the negative impacts of globalization. -- Stephanie Seguino, Associate Professor of Economics, University of Vermont

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduate through professional collections. ―
CHOICE, Vol. 45 No. 6 (February 2008)

Anyone concerned with the complex effects of the contemporary weakening of national borders, "globalization," will surely find much of interest in this collection's 28 chapters. We should all stand in awe at the creativity and resourcefulness of men and women confronting such profound changes, whose gender dimensions are carefully examined in each of the studies of the book. -- Kenneth P. Jameson, Professor of Economics, University of Utah
