This recent book contains the essence of the outstanding work of Zelizer concerning her analysis of economic institutions from the perspective of culture and society. Economic activities are viewed using a micro-habitual approach according to which our casual habits and everyday actions are embodied in monetary transactions which reflect power relations and social structures. The earnings and expenditure of a loving couple or the resources that a household allocates to a child, etc., represent economic dilemmas which involve our most intimate ties as parents, children, partners and lovers.
