Reviews

"This is groundbreaking work in all terms - ethnographically, conceptually, analytically. The kind of book that will become a classic in more than one field." - Elisabeth Kirtsoglou, Durham University

"This is an insightful and gripping account of a troubling undercurrent in Greece as depicted in the personal narratives by men and women who still struggle to build lives and livelihoods in the aftermath of the 2009 crash of the country's state economy." - Kathryn A. Kozaitis, Georgia State University
