Satanic Mills or Silicon Islands?: The Politics of High-Tech Production in the Philippines
Satanic Mills or Silicon Islands?: The Politics of High-Tech Production in the Philippines focuses on the high-tech electronics manufacturing sector in the Philippines, particularly its semiconductor industry. The heart of the book -- the presentation and analysis of four case study firms and the four distinct work regimes they represent -- is also its strength. It provides details of the everyday life of workers and how these everyday lives are embedded in wider contexts of capital, the state and international workers' networks.
