Reviews

"An important book. . . . Not your typical ethnography. . . . [This is] a story told from the inside out."--Michael B. Greene"PsycCRITIQUES" (07/01/2013)
"Hard-hitting, gravitating, and reflexive . . . Dr. Contreras shines in providing readers a greater level of coomplexity and nuance to understand these experiences."-- (10/01/2014)
"At once a sensational, detailed, stomach-churning account of extreme violence and a sober, solid piece of social science research that makes a number of important contributions to our understanding of how violence is situated in structural, cultural, historical, and, especially, situational context. . . . finely wrought, first class social science . . . profound."-- (01/01/2015)
"The Stickup Kids provides a unique insight for researchers, criminal justice representatives, advocates, and policy-makers who want to improve the overall well-being marginalized and segregated racial and ethnic minority communities. . . . A valuable addition."-- (04/04/2015)
