These economic activities spawned dramatic social changes in Mexican society. One young Mexican woman, Anay Palomeque de Carrillo, rode the tumultuous wave of these economic activities from her rural home in tropical southern Mexico to the factories in the harsh desert lands of Ciudad Juarez during the early years of the citys notorious violence.During her years as an education professor at the University of Texas at El Paso, author Elaine Hampton researched Mexican education in border factory (maquiladora) communities.

On one trip across the border into Ciudad Juarez, she met Anay, who became her guide in uncovering the complexities of a factory laborers experiences in these turbulent times.Hampton here provides an exploration of education in an era of dramatic social and economic upheaval in rural and urban Mexico. This critical ethnographic case study presents Anays experiences in a series of narrative essays addressing the economic, social, and political context of her world.

This young Mexican woman leads us through Ciudad Juarez in its most violent years, into womens experiences in the factories, around family and religious commitments as well as personal illness, and on to her achievement of an education through perseverance and creativity.
