Within the rural immigrant community of Istanbul, Turkey, poor women may spend up to 50 hours a week producing goods for export, yet deny that they actually "work." White (anthropology, U. of Nebraska) explores why women and men alike devalue women's work, and shows how the social and gender ideologies that prompt this denial create a pool of cheap labor for the world market. Paper edition (unseen), $12.95. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
