Dying for an iPhone is based on the long-standing research on Chinese labor and labor rights advocacy work in which the three authors were involved. The English edition of the book is a relative latecomer, as a previous version of the book has been released in other languages including Chinese, Italian, and Spanish. Nevertheless, this version covers new material on more recent developments of the global expansion and upgrading of Foxconn, Apple’s response to labor standards and environmental hazards, as well as the prospect of the labor movement in China.
