    a| Annotation b| "The lace makers show the way. The conditions under which they worked never disappeared, as we can see now. Indeed these conditions have returned to the rich countries of the West from where they were exported." From the 2012 Preface The Lace Makers of Narsapur is a sensitive and groundbreaking study of women at the beginning of the process of globalisation. Maria Mies examines the way in which women are used to produce luxury goods for the Western market and simultaneously not counted as workers or producers in their fragmented workplaces. Instead they are defined as non-working housewives and their work as leisure-time activity. The rates of pay are far below acceptable levels resulting in accelerating pauperisation and a rapid deterioration in their position in Indian society. The latest economic boom in India was preceded by dispossession of farmers through the green revolution and, alongside it, the dispossession of women, the lace makers of Narsapur in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
