“Outstanding Title… Fass immersed himself in the daily economic life of the Third World poor, searching behind the often abstract concepts and statistical averages to find out what real people's behavior is like at the margin of subsistence and what broader patterns emerge from that behavior… [A] sophisticated and analytical approach to the nature of grassroots development… Highly recommended for academic and public library collections.”
—R. E. Will, Choice
"This detailed study of how poor Haitians manage their livelihood in Port-au-Prince is one of the most significant books in development economics to emerge in recent years."
—John Friedmann, University of California, Los Angeles
