Description

In Women and Capitalism in the Croatian Hinterland: The Practice of Labor and Consumption, Nila Ginger Hofman documents the experiences of generations of Croatian women, examining what trade liberalization means to a society of workers who have been eager for-and yet ambivalent about-free-market capitalism. Hofman applies labor and consumer analysis to reveal the ideological and idiosyncratic forces that mediate women's participation in the social spheres of labor.show more

Review quote

To illuminate the postsocialist experiences of Croatian women, Hofman wisely focuses on the myriad interrelationships between consumer and labor processes. Her account-rich with detail on everyday realities such as shifting family leave policies and the legacies of socialist DIY culture-will be eye-opening for many readers. -- Jennifer Patico, Georgia State Universityshow more
