A very nice compact look at the lootings that occurred in Argentina during the 2001 economic crisis. Auyero does an excellent job of untangling the clandestine networks between state officials, party members, police officers, and local residents that helped to stimulate and direct the form in which the lootings took place. Definitely worth checking out if you're interested in Argentine politics and history, collective violence, corruption, and clientelism.
