This is an excellent book. This book provides considerable length to impose a clears structure on a most wide-ranging and complex set of materials of female labour in West Papua. This is one of the most innovation and useful book published on female labour supply in developing countries in recent years. This book provides an empirical analysis of indigenous and non indigenous female labour and economic development in West Papua. Following a conceptual introduction, which critically examines the theoretical debates of female labour supply and economic development, the book is structured into around four key issues of female labour which the authors identify as being the central determinants of female labour force participation and economic development. These key processes are: the women at work and development; determinants female labour participation; employment pattern of indigenous and non indigenous women in West Papua; time allocation of employed women and comparison of womenâs employment before and after Special Autonomy for West Papua.
