    Within the rural immigrant community of Istanbul, Turkey, poor women may spend up to fifty hours a week producing goods for export, yet deny that they actually work This ethnographic study seeks to explain why women and men alike devalue women s work and to show how the social and gender ideologies that prompt this denial create a pool of cheap labor for the world markeWithin the rural immigrant community of Istanbul, Turkey, poor women may spend up to fifty hours a week producing goods for export, yet deny that they actually work This ethnographic study seeks to explain why women and men alike devalue women s work and to show how the social and gender ideologies that prompt this denial create a pool of cheap labor for the world market Jenny White bases her study on two years of field research into the internal organization of women s piece work and family workshop production She demonstrates that among these small scale producers, labor for money becomes a kind of kinship relation, in which reciprocal obligation and debt exchange occur Women s work for pay becomes an extension of women s work for the family, in both of which labor is endlessly demanded and yet poorly compensated Case studies of individual workers and workshop managers add a fascinating human dimension to the book White reveals how women s participation in production networks offers the benefits of a social identity and long term security, thus making ambiguous the standard formulations about exploited workers These findings urge a reformulation of traditional theories of petty commodity production and gift exchange to account for the roles played by kinship and gender This study will be of interest to a wide interdisciplinary audience in economic anthropology, women s studies, development and labor migration, and Turkish and Middle Eastern studies.
