Unequal Freedom: How Race and Gender Shaped American Citizenship and Labor

I'm the writer of Unequal Freedom, which has obtained particularly optimistic editorial stories, as might be obvious within the description on Amazon. com. also it has bought a number of awards from scholarly institutions for its contribution to knowing race and gender inequality in America.

The sole assessment of the ebook on Amazon is via a reader who's complaining that the Kindle version didn't paintings properly. the 2 stars the reader offers isn't really of the booklet itself, yet of a faulty digital equipment. The reader must have submitted her criticism at the Kindle web page, now not at the web site for Unequal Freedom.

I have complained approximately this to Amazon, yet there appears to be like no recourse.

Potential readers: please examine the editorial reviews and charges from reports of Unequal Freedom, and in the event that they sound fascinating to you, attempt the publication and put up a reader review.

This was a somewhat quixotic reaction, as I thought it quite odd to divide the subjects each of us was to research on the basis of gender alone. I had not given the matter very serious thought before. But once I had proposed the subject, I liked it immediately and have kept doing so since. What fascinated me was the possibility of looking at gender relations from a new angle, one that would contribute to resolve what I felt THE CHILDREN OF THE RURAL POOR 29 was a rather sterile dualism, namely, the dichotomy male/female.

This is why we embarked, approximately halfway through our stay, on devising other, additional methods of work. When we started with ‘systematic observation’ we had reached, I felt, a crucial moment in the research. The method consisted of spending a few hours recording what we saw, following a method described by Oscar Lewis (1951:63–71). Generally I was the one who would sit observing and writing, while either Seethalekshmi, Mohanakumari or, less often, Beefathumma, would ask contextual questions.

I would afterwards discuss with her the interviews she had recorded and translated literally. In this way we started to get more and more 34 CHILDREN’S LIFEWORLDS testimonies of what the children themselves saw and felt were important issues: their work, the drudgery of housekeeping, the wish to earn money and decide how to spend it, their future.
