".. a very interesting book which breaks new ground in examining the interconnection between child labour and women's home-based work...essential reading for anyone working on child labour, women's work, and informal work. "The policy recommendations are well-argued and innovative... It finds a way through the dilemma that attempts to outlaw child labour in home based work will not work and can harm those they seek to help. " a book that Routledge can be proud of." - "Diane Elson, University of Essex" "...This book is an empirically grounded and policy focussed contribution to debates about how to enhance human security in conditions of flexibility and change." - "Bob Deacon, Professor of Global Social Policy, Sheffield University"
