From the PublisherThe author provides a brilliant integration of world-system, migration, race and gender literature to recast the experiences of women migrants/immigrants. This is a first-rate synthesis and pathbreaking analysis of a broad literature that will have an impact across sociology, history, demography, social work, etc. This is a major contribution to world-system and gender studies where world-system researchers have for the most part ignored women's lives and for gender researchers who have ignored global economic contexts.— Kathryn Ward, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale
"The book is highly readable, comprehensive, and more importantly, lively for an introduction to the experience of immigrant women at the turn of the century. It provides both general and specific information for American and European scholars from a variety of disciplines, such as women's studies, political science, history, economics, and sociology. The feminist interpretations of the issues and problems involving the international movement of female workers is a major strength of this book."— Joyce Tang, University of Vermont"
