Routine Politics and Violence in Argentina by Javier Auyero
Book DescriptionClose to three hundred stores and supermarkets were looted during week-long food riots in Argentina in December 2001. Thirty-four people were reported dead and hundreds were injured. Among the looting crowds, activists from the Peronist party (the main political party in the country) were quite prominent. During the lootings, police officers were conspicuously absent - particularly when small stores were sacked. Through a combination of archival research, statistical analysis, multi-sited fieldwork, and taking heed of the perspective of contentious politics, this book provides an analytic description of the origins, course, meanings, and outcomes of the December 2001 wave of lootings in Argentina.

Flammable, Hardback (November 2009)
In this collaborative ethnography, Javier Auyero and Debora Alejandra Swistun-who was born and raised in the dreadfully polluted shantytown in Buenos Aires from which the book takes its name-vividly describe everyday life in Flammable and depict how this ongoing, slow-motion environmental disaster is experienced and understood by its residents
