520    "Mexico City's public markets were integral to the 
       country's economic development, bolstering the expansion 
       of capitalism from the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth 
       centuries. These publicly owned and operated markets 
       supplied households with everyday necessities and 
       generated revenue for local authorities. At the same time,
       they were embedded in a wider network of economic and 
       social relations that gave the vendors who sold in them an
       influence far beyond the running of their stalls. As they 
       fed the capital's population and fought to protect their 
       own livelihoods, vendors' daily interactions with 
       customers, suppliers and local government shaped the 
       city's public sphere and expanded the scope of popular 
       politics. "Vendors' Capitalism" argues for the centrality 
       of Mexico City's public markets to the political economy 
       of the city from the restoration of the Republic in 1867 
       to the heyday of the so-called "Mexican miracle" and the 
       PRI in the 1960s. As the sites of vendors' dealings with 
       workers, suppliers, government officials, and politicians,
       the multiple conflicts that beset them repeatedly tested 
       the institutional capacity of the state. Through a close 
       reading of the archives and an analysis of vendors' 
       intersecting economic and political lives, Ingrid Bleynat 
       considers the dynamics, as well as the limits, of 
       capitalist development in Mexico"--|cProvided by publisher
