Nine case studies examine workers responses to class relations through independent unions, non-government organisations (NGOs) and more (dis)organised struggles. Countering the notion that globalization holds entirely negative consequences for labour organization, the authors reveal some of the openings for local activism which can arise from transnational production arrangements. The volume covers the second-tier industrializers - China, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, India and Bangladesh. Interdisciplinary in nature, the book aims to be of interest to students and scholars of Asian Studies, Development Studies and International Labour Studies.
