Women Workers in Industrialising Asia

Women Workers in Industrialising Asia
Amarjit Kaur (ed.), Women Workers in Industrialising Asia. Costed, Not Valued
Hampshire: Palgrave MacMillan, 2004; ISBN 0-333-96293-1; 247 pp.

This collection contributes to key theoretical debates about women workers in Asia and breaks new ground by focussing on issues that have been little documented in other studies in the area. It provides new information and insights into labour systems associated with labour intensive export manufactures and state-labour relations in a comparative context. The contributors present a range of unique and varied perspectives from which they consider aspects of the increasing integration of Asian economies, exploring implications for their labour markets.
