"Jason Sumich provides a wonderfully textured analysis of the contradictory nature of Mozambique's middle class. Although remaining highly dependent upon the party-state and a primary beneficiary of its rule since independence, Mozambique's small middle class is nonetheless increasingly disillusioned by Frelimo's betrayal of the promise of independence. This text provides a wonderful addition to the burgeoning study of the African middle class." Roger Southall, University of the Witwatersrand
