Philippe Bourgois's ethnographic study of social marginalization in inner-city America, won critical acclaim . Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 15 years ago. This was one of the books I had to read for my anthropology class, everyone in my class loved this book. This is one of the best books I have ever read, and it is by far the best ethnography ever written.

Expressed in modern social science as the choice between agency and structural explanations, this .

Expressed in modern social science as the choice between agency and structural explanations, this dilemma corresponds in many ways to the old philosophical debate as to how far human beings are possessed of free will. There is a persistent division in the social sciences between those who prefer to break their material up into variables and those who prefer dealing with whole cases.

Philippe Bourgois (born 1956) is professor of anthropology and director of the Center for Social Medicine and Humanities in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at Los Angeles. He was the founding chair of the Department of Anthropology, History and Social Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (1998–2003) and was the Richard Perry University Professor at the University of Pennsylvania (2007–2016).

currently reading this novel and loving it - very moving, a difficult read (not challenging in terms of scholarly rhetoric or writing, but content). You get really invested in the characters, and Bourgois gets close and personal with these dealers and truly dissects the complexities, heart, and danger within the drug ring. I appreciate Bourgeois' awareness of his whiteness in East Harlem, and overall privilege; using this to his advantage, he comes to truly like and respect the characters in the novel. all in all an engaging, ethnographic narrative and research study with much thought and dedication put into it.

So compelling. So inspiring. So poignant. I'm so glad I read this book! How beautifully Bourgois is able to convey the issues of poor, inner-city members who give into temptation in order to do what they feel necessary for sufficient income and for basic human dignity. Few books have been able to articulate these arguments with such grace. Highly recommended to those who wish to better understand their brothers and sisters with whom it can otherwise be a challenge to relate!

This book is one of the most memorable books from college for me. It really gave me more ability to relate to all human beings. I read this for a cultural anthro course. The man who wrote this made some dangerous choices which gives more weight to the writing. The really like the writing style and found it easy to read. These are real stories of Americans.

Got this book for class in my policy grad school class. It was a good read. At times, hard to get through because the vulgarity, but super good ethnographic read.

This is like an anthropologists memoire. If I had known that I might not have started reading. Boy and I glad I did. It is a fascinating account of Puerto Ricans in NY city in the crack epidemic, their lives, their culture and their sorrows.

Interesting concept. It gives you a glimpse into a world most never see.

Its a good book wish there was an audio version;
It is not a common thing to find an Ethnography that's actually FUN to read. This book is the exception. I highly recommend this book!
