" Bound Feet, Young Hands provides a detailed, much-needed analysis of Chinese footbinding and women's labor during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Bossen and Gates break new ground in our understanding of the role and status of women's work during a period of enormous economic, political and cultural change." (Rubie S. Watson, anthropologist and former director of Peabody Museum Harvard University)
"Bound Feet, Young Hands represents the most empirically grounded and analytically bold contribution to studies of gender, labor, and economic transformation in imperial China. Based on a staggering volume of surveys, field interviews, and local sources, this meticulously researched volume persuasively illuminates the economic rationale underlying the rise and fall of foot binding, shattering multiple strands of conventional wisdom about the social and cultural milieu of restraining the mobility of young women." (Kellee S. Tsai Hong Kong University of Science & Technology)
