On the Run Fugitive Life in an American City Read ☆ 2 Rs teach their younger siblings and cousins how to run from the police and crucially to keep away from friends and family so they can stay hidden; and we see over and over the relentless toll that the presumption of criminality takes on families and futures While not denying the problems of the drug trade and the violence that often accompanies it through her gripping accounts of daily life in the forgotten neighborhoods of America's cities Goffman makes it impossible for us to ignore the very real human costs of our failed response the blighting of entire neighborhoods and the needless sacrifice of whole generations A very engaging ethnography as a college student the author moved to the inner city and spent her time hanging out with a group of young black men often on the run from the law The book is a good look into how heavy policing affects all aspects of individual and community life And the author is a good storyteller so it makes for engaging reading Since she writes about one social network it s hard to tell how representative this is and I think the criticism that the author herself got in too deep is probably valid She also contradicts herself a few times Still it is worth reading
