Patricia Fernández-Kelly, Jon Shefner. Penn State Press, 2006 - Political Science - 280 pages. Out of the Shadows brings leading scholars of the informal economy and informal politics together to address how globalization has influenced local efforts to resolve political and economic needs&-and how these seemingly separate issues are indeed deeply related.

Out of the Shadows should be a central reference for those interested in the grassroots reality of neoliberalism and democracy, and its chapter by Centeno and Portes should be read by anyone interested in Latin American economies. Since the beginning of scholarly writing about the informal economy in the mid-1970s, the debate has evolved from addressing survival strategies of the poor to considering the implications for national development and the global economy.

Out of the Shadows successfully goes beyond this 20-year-old debate by bringing both the role of the state and of popular activism to bear on the phenomenon of informality

Out of the Shadows successfully goes beyond this 20-year-old debate by bringing both the role of the state and of popular activism to bear on the phenomenon of informality. As Patricia Fernández-Kelly argues in her excellent introduction, understanding how and why both the state and social movements tend to actively maintain economic informality is important since it is through the interaction between public officials and unregulated actors that the informal economy evolves (p. 3).

Since the beginning of scholarly writing about the informal economy in the mid-1970s, the debate has evolved from addressing survival strategies of the poor to considering the implications for national development and the global economy. Simultaneously, research on informal politics has ranged from neighborhood clientelism to contentious social movements basing their claims on a variety of social identities in their quest for social justice.

Despite related empirical and theoretical concerns, these research traditions have seldom engaged in dialogue with one another. Out of the Shadows brings leading scholars of the informal economy and informal politics together to address how globalization has influenced local efforts to resolve political and economic needs—and how these seemingly separate issues are indeed deeply related.
