Abstract

In The Migrant’s Paradox: Street Livelihoods and Marginal Citizenship in Britain, Suzanne M. Hall draws on interviews with migrant shopkeepers in five UK cities to explore the formation of street livelihoods and edge economies in the urban margins. Through the process of ‘writing the street as world’, this book brings the migrant experience – and the migrant’s paradox – to life for readers, writes Yasemin Karsli. The Migrant’s Paradox: Street Livelihoods and Marginal Citizenship in Britain. Suzanne M. Hall. University of Minnesota Press. 2021.
