Reviews

"An in-depth, detailed example of the ways in which the criminal justice system replicates the racist inclinations of the larger society."--CHOICE
"Stick Together and Come Back Home is a compassionate look at criminalized youth and adults. . . . This book is likely to be of interest to students and scholars of juvenile justice, incarceration, race, and gangs. It should also be of interest to policymakers and practitioners . . . who may be individually well-intentioned but embedded in larger and destructive systems."--Social Forces
"Stick Together and Come Back Home is a valuable contribution to the field for its examination of the interplay between state and street violence on both cultural and structural levels. ... In shifting the focus from gang conflict itself to a deconstruction of how institutions systematically organize youth around gang conflict, Lopez-Aguado illuminates how law enforcement simultaneously structures and deploys intergroup violence as evidence of the need for criminal justice targeting."--American Journal of Sociology
