The Architecture of Livelihoods in Rural Kenya

Poor people in most rural areas of developing countries often improvise resources in unique ways to enable them to make a living.  Resources and Oppurtunity takes the view that resources are dynamic and fluid, arguing that villagers co-produce them through redefinition and renaming in everyday practice, and use them in diverse ways.  The book focuses inter alia on oridnary social activities to bring out people's creativity in locating, redesigning and embracing livelihood opportunities in processes anchored in social relationships that span local, national, regional and international borders.  The book uniquely brings out the respective tensions between agency and structure, locality and globality in livelihood construction in rural Kenya.
