Рецензируемая книга основана на этнографическом исследовании в Москве в конце 1990-х годов. Автор анализирует феномен кризис, становящийся для жителей Москвы доминирующей схемой интерпретации мира, и показывает, как эта схема функционировала в обыденных процессах осмысления мира и в обыденных практиках повседневной жизни.
