This major work combines theoretical innovation with systematic empirical substance to explore the contours and dynamics of a major global social phenomenon - the globalization of reproductive labour. Grounded in careful historical analysis, the book offers important insights into key actors in contemporary globalization processes: migrant care workers. Expanding the traditional focus on domestic workers, the book presents a significant analysis of the international migration of professional nurses and religious care workers and the part they play in forging the 'new' global reproductive economy. Covering a range of countries in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas, this innovative inter-disciplinary analysis of a major global phenomenon of our time is an essential reference for scholars of migration, globalization and gender.
