Made in the Philippines by James A. Tyner
Book DescriptionThe Philippines is the world's largest exporter of temporary contract labor with a huge 800,000 workers a year being deployed on either six month or two year contracts. This labor migration is highly regulated by the government, private, and non-governmental/non-private organizations. Tyner argues that migrants are socially constructed, or 'made' by these parties and that migrants in turn become political resources. Employing a post-structural feminist perspective Tyner questions the very ontology of migration.

Military Legacies, Hardback (January 2010)
Landmines, cluster-bombs, chemical pollutants, and other remnants of war continue to cause death to humans and damage to the environment long after the guns have fallen silent. To understand the legacy of modern militarism, this book presents an overview of post-conflict societies, with an emphasis on the human toll exacted by modern warfare.
War, Violence, and Population, Paperback (April 2009)» View all books by James A. Tyner
Offers a spatial perspective on how and why populations are regulated and disciplined by mass violence - and why these questions matter for scholars concerned about social justice. This book shows how demographic analysis of fertility, mortality, and migration cannot be complete without taking war and genocide into account.
