Om boka

This ground-breaking ethnography of an export-orientated factory in Egypt examines the dynamic relationships between the emergent Mubarak-bizniz (business) elites - who are caught in an intensely competitive globalized supply chain - and the local realities of the daily lives of their young, educated, and mixed-gender labor force. Power and resistance, as well as individual identity and aspirations, are explored through the articulations of class, gender and religion in shop floor practices and management discourses. Moving beyond the confines of the factory, Leila Zaki Chakravarti's study evokes the wider world, and how the factory fits into it.
