Abstract

In Caring for Strangers: Filipino Medical Workers in Asia, Megha Amrith examines the personal narratives, experiences and aspirations of Filipino medical workers who are living and working in Singapore as one of the many destinations that appear to offer a lucrative and stable career overseas. This ethnographic study offers a comprehensive insight into its participants’ lives, writes Michael Warren, and shows the multiple articulations and meanings of care as it crosses borders.
