"Black Market Capital offers a number of contributions to our understanding of urban life in Mexico. . . . challenges some commonly held historical interpretations of Mexican and Latin American history." * Journal of Interdisciplinary History *
"In this engaging and important book, Konove analyzes and historicizes the significance of the Baratillo, a street marketplace whose history spans back to the pre-Columbian past. . . . Black Market Capital is a significant and creative contribution to the growing historiography on crime in Mexico. While historians engage the importance of place, Konove makes the public market, a few side streets, and its stalls central to modern Mexican political, social, and economic history." * Hispanic American Historical Review *
