“Offers a wealth of important insights on changing gender roles in Southeast Asia, on the analysis of household economies, and on international processes of industrialization.”—Choice
“The book is both theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich. Wolf draws effectively scholarship ranging from historiography about early modern Europe to recent analyses of economic conduct of peasant families in contemporary Asia or Latin America...Wolf tells wonderful stories about vibrant, even irreverent, young women.”—Women's Review Of Books
