'From the exploitation of cheap and anonymous female labor (Nina Huntemann), to the emergence of unpaid creators as ROM hackers and fan translators (Mia Consalvo) and the cultural work of game developers in the Middle East (Vit Sisler), contributions provide useful, if necessarily episodic, insights into the sometimes grim realities behind the fantasies of game playing. Well edited and properly documented, this collection provides useful insights for those who study the acts of video games on the globalized stage. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.' - CHOICEBook Description:
