Abstract

Reviews 87 tion gives this text a special place in the literature and suggests that extreme care should be taken in drawing broad generalizations about the forces driving internal migration and the impact of such migration on social change. Thus, this text is counterposed to the vast majority of those dealing with internal migration as a process comprised of relatively homogeneous social agents operating in a rational-choice environment. By demonstrating that identity and context are both endogenous in social systems and that gender is always an important and complex factor (interacting with other factors that are similarly fluid in geographic space and in time) in the life choices of men and women, these authors have made an important contribution to the literatures on transition, China, migration, and gender. It behooves social scientists in all fields, from anthropology to economics, to pay heed to their message. Satyananda J. Gabriel Satyananda Gabriel is an associate professor of economics at Mount Holyoke College specializing in economic development and transition in China. Daniel K. Gardner.
