Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ✠ By Sudhir Venkatesh ⇻ In the late 1980s and 1990s, rogue sociologist Venkatesh infiltrated the world of tenant and gang life in Chicago s Robert Taylor Home projects He found a complex system of compromises and subsistence that makes life barely manageable Venkatesh excellently illustrates the resourcefulness of impoverished communities in contrast to a society that has virtually abandoned them He also reveals the symbiotic relationship between the community and the gangs that helps sustain each Reg Rogers reads with great emphasis and rhythm His lilting, cadence and vocal characterization of tenants is enjoyable Rogers s first person narrative establishes a deep intimacy with the reader Venkatesh reads the final chapter, but he lacks the subtly and nuance that Rogers projects throughout his reading The insubstantial author interview on the last disc mostly covers material already discussed in the book Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Adult High SchoolAs a young graduate student fresh off an extended stint following the Grateful Dead, Venkatesh began studying urban poverty With a combination of an ethnographer s curiosity about another culture and some massive navet, he gathered firsthand knowledge of the intricacies of Chicago s Robert Taylor projects Early on, he met a megalomaniac gang leader known here as J.T., who became his mentor Venkatesh observed and learned how the crack game works, and how many have their fingers in the pie and need life to remain the way it is He observed violence, corruption, near homelessness, good cops, bad cops, and a lot of neglect and politics as usual He made errors in judgmentit took a long time for his street smarts to catch up to his book smartsbut he tells the story in such a way as to allow readers to figure out his missteps as he did Finally, as the projects began to come down, Venkatesh was able to demonstrate how something that seems positive is not actually good for everyone The first line in his preface, I woke up at about 7 30 a.m in a crack den, reflects the prurient side of his studies, the first chapter title, How does it feel to be black and poor reflects the theoretical side, and both work together in this well rounded portrayal.Jamie Watson, Harford County Public Library, MD Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
