Additional Notes

From The Publisher*An important contribution to Andeanist anthropology, Sian Lazar's innovative treatment of citizenship represents a new take on classic political and urban anthropology. Very few studies have explored with such nuance and personal intimacy the political beliefs and practices of poor residents of an Andean city."--Daniel M. Goldstein, author of "The Spectacular City: Violence and Performance in Urban Bolivia
