University of Chicago Press, 1987 (Herdruk), 204 blz., porto 3,95 euro NL, ISBN 0226042324, Paperback, in goede staat. Engelstalig.,In this innovative exploration of the interaction between economic processes and social relations, Lourdes BenerŪa and Martha RoldŠn examine the effect of homework on gender and family dynamics. Their fieldwork in Mexico City during 1981-82 has enabled them to provide important new empirical data on industrial piecework performed by women as well as intimate glimpses of these women's lives which place that piecework in context. Tracing the stages of production from home to jobber, workshop, and manufacturer , the authors demonstrate the way in which the work and lives of these women are connected through subcontracting to the national and often international system of production..
