Women in Global Migration, 1945-2000 : A Comprehensive Multidisciplinary Bibliography Hardback
Part of the Bibliographies and Indexes in Women's Studies series
With large numbers of people migrating to other countries after World War II, a substantial amount of scholarship has focused on the status, problems, and successes of women immigrants since 1945.
The first comprehensive compilation of the international literature on these women, this bibliography--with over 5,100 entries--reveals the breadth of scholarship on feminist immigration issues.
Focusing particularly on sources from North America and Western Europe, where most immigrant women settled, the book includes feminist analyses, bibliographies, demographic studies, economic comparisons, educational research, health and medical reports, legal discussions, biographies and autobiographies, psychological case studies, religious reports, sociological investigations, and publications dealing with general aspects of female immigration. The book covers such legal issues as citizenship, international conventions on contract workers, the traffic in women, and services and government benefits to immigrants.
Medical entries include such topics as female genital mutilation, comparative obstetric results, and equity of treatment.
Education entries cover such subjects as adult education and the second-language programs necessary for assimilation.
With entries in several languages, the bibliography includes books, journal articles, essays and chapters in books, dissertations, ERIC reports, national and international government documents, and statistical sources.
With immigration a major political and social issue in most countries today, the book provides an important research tool.
