AUTHOR

Rhacel Parreñas

SUMMARY

"In her earlier important work, Servants of Globalization, Rhacel Parrenas described the extraordinary migration of Filipinas to care jobs in the North. In this book she turns to the children left behind. Through superb interviewing, Parrenas uncovers the poignant story of absent mothers, present but unaccommodating fathers, kin helpers, and children haunted by the feeling of being left behind. These children are, Parrenas shows us, the 'fall guys' of a powerful global logic far beyond their control. This is a brilliant book we all should read."Arlie Hochschild, co-editor with Barbara Ehrenreich of Global Woman: Nannies, Maids and Sex Workers in the New Economy and The Commercialization of Intimate Life "With an ethnographer's ear and a social critic's lens, Rhacel Salazar Parrenas illuminates the care deficit of the immigrant second generation, the children of transnational Filipino families left behind by mothers and fathers who labor in the global economy. Her uncovering of the gender paradoxthe intensification of the gender division of labor, of male providers and female nurturers, despite women's wage workis nothing less than brilliant!"Eileen Boris, Hull Professor of Women's Studies, University of California, Santa BarbaraRhacel Parreñas is the author of 'Children of Global Migration: Transnational Families and Gendered Woes', published 2005 under ISBN 9780804749459 and ISBN 0804749450.
