dc.description.abstract This edited volume shows state authorities struggling with market and street traders over control of the economy and of city space. The introduction considers debates over concepts of informal, illegal and immoral trade, the relation between state credibility and public subsistence, and modalities of linkage and collusion between traders and specific state actors. Ethnographic cases analyze violent confrontations and hostile policies from Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Peru, India, Hong Kong and Washington, DC. en
