Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China by Leslie T Chang
Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China

Nancy Stokley, December 21, 2009

This is a fascinating account of the inside lives of some of the thousands of young peasant women who have migrated alone into the factory cities of south China. From her unique vantage point as a Chinese American, Leslie Chang writes a fascinating story of the family history, inner lives, fabulous dreams, and contradictions involved in making this huge leap from daughter of rural rice farmer to 21st century entrepreneur. Read it for an insight into the formative narrative for future titans of industry.
