"Wilson provides a hugely important corrective to our tendency to take for granted the dominant systems of food production, exchange and consumption. Her ethnographic account of how ordinary Cubans live and link two coeval economic systems helps us to appreciate the underlying scales and values that all economic systems express. An excellent combination of the best of anthropology and human geography."
—Daniel Miller, Professor of Material Culture, University College London
"Everyday Moral Economies is a fascinating study of food provisioning and the creation of value in contemporary Cuba. Skilfully combining a geographical understanding of the politics of scale with an anthropological sensitivity to the vicissitudes of daily life, Marisa Wilson reveals how the contradictions between food-as-commodity (within globalised neoliberal markets) and food-as-entitlement (with a socialist planned economy) are resolved in everyday social practice."
—Peter Jackson, Professor of Human Geography, University of Sheffield
