(RRP $32.95 including GST) ISBN 1864510515
This book examines the over-representation of Filipino women as victims of homicide in Australia. The authors argue that the vulnerability of Filipino women to violence in this country can only be understood through the intersection of representations of gender and race within he context of international relations. The work examines homicide and domestic violence, immigration and the marketing of marriage and sex, and the Internet as a specific site through which idealised constructions of 'Asian' women are commodified to be accessed by ''Western' men. The book is relevant for those interested in criminology, international relations, gender studies and cultural studies.
