Abstract

In They Eat Our Sweat: Transport Labor, Corruption, and Everyday Survival in Urban Nigeria, Daniel E. Agbiboa challenges simplistic understandings of corruption by offering a captivating study of Lagos’s informal transport sector. This deft and rigorous examination is an important read not only for scholars of corruption, but also those interested in transport, urban informality and urban governance, writes Daniela Schofield. They Eat Our Sweat: Transport Labor, Corruption, and Everyday Survival in Urban Nigeria. Daniel E. Agbiboa. Oxford University Press. 2022.
