This book provides a detailed account of social life in four selected watta communities distributed in three cities. It examines income, employment, social organization, culture, educational achievement and health statutes. It highlights ethnic pluralism among the urban poor, their economic dynamism and cultural adaptation, as well as the manner in which their full absorption into urban society is hindered by the structure of urban society itself. Using recent contributions to sociological theory by Castells, this study provides insights into crisis conditions for the poor in Third World countries.
