Editorial Reviews


"Goldin’s analytic and methodological foci are parameters which set the stage for a study that is as powerful as it is focused." —Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology

From the Inside Flap

Explores how rural peoples experience economic and cultural change as their country joins the global market, focusing on their thoughts about work to learn about Guatemala's changing economy. Case studies focus on workers in small-scale garment production, vegetable farming for local markets, agriculture grown for export, and garment assembly factories. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
