"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." * Journal of Criminal Justice Education * "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." -- Mercer L. Sullivan * Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books * "Hard-hitting, gravitating, and reflexive . . . Dr. Contreras shines in providing readers a greater level of coomplexity and nuance to understand these experiences." -- Robert J. Duran * Journal of Qualitative Criminal Justice and Criminology * "An important book. . . . Not your typical ethnography. . . . [This is] a story told from the inside out." -- Michael B. Greene * PsycCRITIQUES *
