Fascinating study and inside account of the lives of maids and caregivers in the oil-rich Middle East, who become contractually bound to near-slavery by taking positions overseas. Dutch law professor Vlieger interviewed many maids, bosses, and job agencies to get to the truth. She places what she found into a theoretical frame of petropolitics. Accessible to everyone, with compelling stories.
