Factory Girls von Leslie T. Chang,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China (Taschenbuch)
I am a Chinese migration researcher at the University of Leipzig. I am writing my PhD dissertation on Chinese Migration to Africa (East Africa). I wanted to inform myself on migration in China and there is no better book I have come across than Factory Girls. It is filled with so many details regarding the lives of Chinese migrants in China and of course specifically Chinese Factory girls. The author travels with the factory girls, follows them all over, talks to them, gets to know their families and friends. She takes you through their lives. Leslie followed their lives for over three years and she writes about their experiences, thoughts and dreams very very well. Of course the great part of this book is Leslie's idea to follow only a few migrants and to tell the story with specifics and real-life events. Leslie will even tell you the exact time including minutes, when the migrants leave a destination and when they arrive. She will tell you what they eat in the trains and take you through the troubles and anxieties of getting a train ticket. She will take you through the boyfriend-girlfriend relations in China and what the families think of it...this book is definetely one of the best books I have personally come across while researching on china and I will shortly include in my best books-reading list on chinesemigration.com.
