Based on in-depth ethnographic research - and using an approach that seeks to understand how migration is experienced by the migrants themselves - this is a fascinating study of the experiences of women in rural China who joined the vast migration to Beijing and other cities at the end of the twentieth century.

Malcolm Payne, Gurid Aga Askeland - Globalization and international social work: Postmodern change and challenge
2008 | ISBN: 0754649466 | PDF | 188 pages | 1.05 MB

Globalization challenges social work with constant social change, making a social worker's job and the task of social work education more complex and uncertain. Post-modern thinking suggests that social workers must learn to cope with complexity in ways that are in tension with the increasingly managerialist organization of the social services. The authors explore and question the concepts of 'postmodern', 'international' and 'global' in the light of growing interest in international social work in the early 21st century.
