"A fairly comprehensive monograph, highly suitable for classroom use, that offers a wide range of information fit into traditional anthropological categories...an interesting study of cultural integrity and pattern in a setting of what appears to be complex sociopolitical chaos." American Anthropologist "Whether or not one accepts Susan Lobo's optimistic analysis, her ability to translate the apparent chaos of shanty-town lives into such neat patterns and to help outsiders view life as the inhabitants do are important contributions." Inter-American Review of Bibliography "An extremely competent ethnography, simple and straightforward." Anthropos "A pleasure to read, a mine of information which will be useful in teaching students to formulate their own hypotheses." International Journal of Urban & Regional Research "Very well written and provides a great wealth of the liveliest sort of ethnographic detail." Latin American Research Review "Lobo's study of two squatter settlements in Lima provides a solid, well-written, detailed, traditional ethnography of poor families in a Third World urban setting." Hispanic American Historical Review "This well-written account ...has a lot of heart and feeling for the human face of the urban poor. " International Migration Review
