Abstract

This work is the result not only of years of dedication by British researcher Helen Sampson, but also of her courage to face the challenges of life and maritime work - which, it is worth remembering, is characterized by a harsh and predominantly male environment. Through her investigation, whose motto is transnationalism, the author strips the daily lives of individuals who, although central to the world trade in goods, are often made invisible. It should be noted, however, that the ethnography presented does not adhere to the description of the context and challenges of maritime work, as Helen Sampson also offers us a study on the families of some sailors. In bringing up the family and work experiences of this important category that operates in the sphere of capitalist circulation, the author overturns some of the stereotypes and convictions surrounding the so-called globalization , showing that the global opening movement is not essentially inclusive, at least not for everyone.
