Pressestimmen"Other people write about patronage politics as a form of organization, as a scourge to eradicate, or as a necessary evil on the way to full democracy. Javier Auyero writes about it as a raucous, improvised, crucial way of surviving poverty and inequality. Reporting perceptive first-hand observations in playful, energetic prose, Auyero illuminates poor people's politics in Argentina and elsewhere." - Charles Tilly, Columbia University "At the level of most political science literature on urban poverty and clientelism, this work is genuinely pathbreaking. Combining the best of 'thick description' ethnography with a sense of more global processes at work in a society, Auyero uses the most up - to - date analytical frameworks to interrogate an object of study that has rarely - if ever - been so addressed. This is a book to be reckoned with over the next few years and beyond." - Daniel James, author of Dona Maria's Story: Life History, Memory, and Political Identity " ... this book gives valuable insight into how people at the margins of their society survive the current, harsh economic climate of Argentina."--Jrnl of the Royal Anthropological Insitute, June 2002
