 For example, Hobs says when
>discussing migration to cities in Peru: " However much the migrants used
>the tool kit  of traditional society to construct their urban existence,
>building and structuring  the old shanty town like the old rural
>communities" .
What kind of a moron could write a sentence like that in the wake of all
the work that has been done on shantytown life as a PRODUCT of failed
industrialization.
I ran into EH once at UCLA and have since lost all my respect for him. He's
better off writing on jazz.
