Materializing Poverty : How the Poor Transform Their Lives, Hardback Book

Materializing Poverty : How the Poor Transform Their Lives Hardback

Part of the Anthropology of Daily Life series

Description

In Materializing Poverty, anthropologist Erin Taylor explores how residents of a squatter settlement in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, use their material resources creatively to solve everyday problems and, over a few decades, radically transform the community.

Their struggles show how these everyday engagements with materiality, rather than more dramatic efforts, generate social change and build futures.
