From the Publisher'It is satisfying to have the opportunity to read a book where the voice and experience of the author is central to the narrative and yet so finely balanced with the voices of the researched. Sanders manages here to maintain this balance throughout the book, simultaneously providing the reader with a rich and deep ethnographic research project and a well-constructed narrative of youth offending. This can be considered a valuable contribution to the methodology of youth research as well as criminological and sociological understandings of youth culture and youth crime.' - Peter Rogers, University of Manchester
'A vibrant empirical research project, one which I feel is a valuable addition to any literature collection on youth culture and youth crime and has more to offer in the wider understanding of case study research as both a strategy and method.'

"Despite the length of the book, it is very readable. It questions perceptions of youth crime in the inner city and makes some timely suggestions as to what might be done to reduce, in particular, drug and acquisitive crime" Judith Mortimore, Thames View Sept 08'
