Anthropology and the Global Factory: Studies of the New Industrialization in the Late Twentieth Century

Synopsis

In this systematic view of the "capitalization" of the world economy the authors show how new economic linkages are being formed between world markets and small-scale entrepreneurs and home-based local producers. At the same time, they point to ways in which people use their local traditions of kinship, culture, and community to resist and shape economic change to more satisfying local ends. This collection of original essays explores in concrete anthropological detail the ways that people throughout the world have been drawn into this new international division of labor.
