This remarkable book reveals the human cost of China’s staggering growth, not in statistics but in the plain, unvarnished stories of its migrant workers, who, for more than two decades, have journeyed from the provinces, flooding into China’s urban centers, fueling the fires that drive its engines of urban growth and economic expansion. From factory workers to neon sign makers to starry-eyed entrepreneurs, here are the hopes, dreams, triumphs, and heartbreaking tragedies of several generations of migrant workers. A must-read for those interested in labor issues, oral histories, and emerging global economies.
