Summary
"Examination of problems faced by working-class families in Guadalajara. Bringing women and children to the center of her analysis, the author explores the effects of an uneven labor market on the structure and organization of households, revealing a highly homogenous working class, united in its survival instinct and in its dependence upon the women of the family for the defense of its standards of living"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
