Code of the Street by Elijah Anderson

Code of the Street: Decency, Violence, and the Moral Life of the Inner City - Elijah Anderson

This is an interesting sociological study on certain areas of Philadelphia. While it doesn't cover the same information repeatedly, it does leave something to be desired in the way its set up. The most interesting parts were the stories from interviews conducted for research but the subject, while obviously deserving of attention, does not particularly interest me.

 

This is not something I would have picked up, let alone finished, on my own but it was, alas, assigned reading for a sociology class I took.
