Organizing Home-Based Labor in the Era of Structural Adjustment (New Approaches in Sociology)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


No Place Like Home examines the emergence of home-based women workers as paradigmatic figures of contemporary capitalism, neoliberal governmentality, and socio-political contestation. Far from an isolated or contingent situation, home-based work constitutes today an enormous arena of 'invisible' social and political struggles of subaltern and ethno-racially subordinated women.
