RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 213765896 LA English T1 Factory girls : from village to city in a changing China A1 Chang, Leslie T., PB Spiegel & Grau PP New York YR 2008 SN 9780385520171 0385520174 AB "An eye-opening and previously untold story, Factory Girls is the first look into the everyday lives of the migrant factory population in China." "China has 130 million migrant workers - the largest migration in human history. In Factory Girls, Leslie T. Chang, a former correspondent for the Wall Street Journal in Beijing, tells the story of these workers primarily through the lives of two young women, whom she follows over the course of three years as they attempt to rise from the assembly lines of Dongguan, an industrial city in China's Pearl River Delta." "Factory Girls demonstrates how the mass movement from rural villages to cities is remaking individual lives and transforming Chinese society, much as emigration to America's shores remade our own country a century ago."--Jacket.
