Summary
Poor people in most rural areas of developing countries often improvise resources in unique ways in order 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 on, among other things, ordinary 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
