From the Publisher"A remarkably-researched political ethnography of social violence in the hyper-violent drug-infested world of Brazilian favelas. . . . Intrepid and sophisticated."
— Qualitative Sociology
"Accessibly written and tightly argued, this book should reorient social science and policy debates on its topic, and will find wide adoption across a range of courses."
"Arias is to be applauded for his courageous and sustained research in very difficult locations, and for his evident humanity and concern for the residents of the favelas."
— British Journal of Criminology
"This book is a major contribution to the scholarly discussion on urban violence in Latin America."
— Latin Americanist
"A refreshing antidote to the earnest but misleading dichotomies of much official discourse. . . . Arias adds a distinctive voice . . . in terms of his subject matter, theoretical perspective, and methods. . . . This voice will become increasingly valuable."
— The Journal of Latin American Studies
