>Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers in the Global Economy
>By Grace Chang
>Foreword by Mimi Abramovitz
>Illegal. Unamerican. Disposable. In a nation with an unprecedented history
>of immigration, the prevailing image of those who cross our borders in
>search of work and a better future is that of a drain on society. In
>Disposable Domestics, Grace Chang proves that the women who perform the
>least desirable jobs are crucial to our economy and society. She also
>shows how these women are actively resisting the exploitation they face.
>In her illuminating book, Grace Chang shows us clearly how global capital
>and international policy are linked with domestic policy to trap immigrant
>women in their paradoxical position as the most valuable and the most
>vulnerable workers in the United States today ... Chang also offers an
>inspiring account of how immigrant women and immigrant advocates are
>organizing to fight for justice. I hope everyone will read this important
