In this engrossing and original book, Leslie Salzinger takes us with her into the gendered world of Mexico's global factories. Her careful ethnographic work, personal voice, and sophisticated analysis capture the feel of life inside the maquiladoras and make a compelling case that transnational production is a gendered process. The research grounds contemporary feminist theory in an examination of daily practices and provides an important new perspective on globalization.

"This is a book Border Studies has been waiting for--a pathbreaking study of the gendered meanings and identities at work in the transnational assembly plants that dominate the social landscape of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.... It will surely become a classic in the field." "Through case studies of employment and management in four different factories, Salzinger beautifully demonstrates the variability, and flexibility of concepts of masculinity and femininity, the fact that they are context-dependent performative behaviors. The ethnographically based empirical data, as well as the sophisticated mastery of theory, make this book an unusually rich contribution to the fields of international labor and gender studies." "[Salzinger] launches a new phase in the study of women employed in offshore production, with significant implications for women in factories generally."
