Summary
In this analysis of three generations of women in a Chinese silk factory, Lisa Rofel interweaves the intimate details of her observations with a broad-ranging critique of the meaning of modernity in a postmodern age. Exploring attitudes toward work, marriage, society, and culture, she convincingly connects the changing meanings of the modern in official discourse to the stories women tell about themselves and what they make of their lives
