Customer Review

on September 22, 2006
Before reading this book I hadn't given much thought to labor migration other than what I knew about "outsourcing." Virtual Migration gave me a brand new perspective of labor flows in the 21rst century. Author Aneesh explores how technology is affecting the current labor regime throughout the world. His research of software programmers in India, who collaborate with multinational firms, sheds insight into how technology is breaking the barriers of time and geographical location. Through economic, social, and cultural analysis he disects the winners and losers of these new international labor practices that link the US and India. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to look deeper into the topic they know as "outsourcing." Too often, the discourse of globalization and labor is limited by angry talking heads, and mistaken politicians. This book presents the finer points of how and why we are being impacted by technology in a highly globalized world, and what the future might hold for us. This book is a quick read with a fresh perspective that must be heard!
