Review quote

"Peruvian Street Lives captures the lives, the daily rhythms, passions, and politics of the women who crowd Cuzco's markets and streets. Seligmann breaks through surface understandings and misperceptions of these women and their work and offers us a rich stew, a close view of their everyday challenges and the cultural logic of the Andean marketplace. I look forward to using this book in teaching." -Florence Babb, professor of anthropology and women's studies at the University of Iowashow more
