Factory Daughters" is distinguished by wide-ranging fieldwork in Java and a combination of narratives, rigorous surveys and quantitative analysis. In bringing us the words of many Javanese women, Wolf is able to vividly portray the ways they negotiate employment, income and marriage decisions through the webs of family obligations.

Taking the reader inside the households where Javanese women live and the factories where they labour, Diane Wolf reveals the contradictions, constraints and changes in women's lives in the Third World. She debunks conventional wisdom about the patriarchal family, while at the same time clearly identifying the complex dynamics of class, gender, agrarian change and industrialization in rural Java. "Factory Daughters" is distinguished by wide-ranging fieldwork in Java and a combination of narratives, rigorous surveys and quantitative analysis. In bringing us the words of many Javanese women, Wolf is able to vividly portray the ways they negotiate employment, income and marriage decisions through the webs of family obligations. The result is an original, effective contribution that deepens our understanding of industrialization and family life in the Third World.
  • Very interesting and easy to follow! Would recommend :)

  • Diane Wolf tackles a complex area with style. Her objective presentation of the impacts on women (and their families) of the increasingly industrialised Java provides the reader with a wealth of information without overuse of terminology from either the developmental or feminist schools.
    Her consistent concentration on Java, recognising the diversity of Indonesia and the danger of generalising the numeorus ethnic groups, gives strength to her research, as does an overview of the methodology which illustrates the time Diane committed to the region in completing her study.
    The use of 'real people', and their stories, brought a personal touch to the book, allowing the reader to appreciate the reasoning behind many of the decisions and actions of the women involved.
    An interesting and informative book that I was able to read from cover to cover, but also able to refer to sparodically for specific information.
