Cover of Everyday Moral Economies by Marisa Wilson

Dr Wilson’s book offers an insightful and most original ethnographic analysis of contemporary Cuban economy and society, providing a comprehensive look at Cuba today, with coverage of history, politics, economics, and social and environmental justice and with a focus on the conflict between the socialist-welfare ideal of food as an entitlement and the market value of food as a commodity.
