Taking the reader inside the households where Javanese women live and the factories where they work, Diane Wolf reveals the contradictions, constraints, and changes in their lives. She debunks conventional wisdom about the patriarchal family, while at the same time clearly identifying the complex dynamics of class, gender, agrarian change, and industrialization in the Third World.
