'This book is much more than the historical monograph it appears to be, and should be widely read as women's history, as a study of the creation of an industrial labor force, and simply as a vivid documentary picture of the lives and times of the women ... The book is excellently constructed and written in a way that serves gradually to build up a full and fascinating picture of life and work in the mills ... For those who want a better understanding of what it meant to be a woman in early 20th-century China ... this is a chance not to be missed.'The China QuarterlyReseña del editor:
In Shanghai, China's largest industrial center prior to 1949, cotton was king and the majority of mill workers were women. This book presents rich information on all aspects of the life of this group of urban workers.
