Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gina Ulysse is the first anthropologist to zoom in on the far-ranging internationalization of Caribbean market women, and her analysis clearly and compellingly illuminates the historical depth, cultural intricacies, and political and economic stakes involved in their work and their self-making. There is no other synthesis and original research like this on socioeconomic agents who have emerged in response to historical shifts in Jamaica's place within the global economy in the past thirty years." - Faye harrison, author of Outsider Within: Reworking Anthropology in the Global Age"
