About this product
- DescriptionHow do poverty, youth and crime relate to the concept of being 'cool'? Jonathan Ilan presents a unique, theoretically informed overview of street culture in various parts of the world - its origins, functions, manifestations and appeal - examining both its bearing on criminal lifestyles and on the cultivation of 'cool.' Drawing on contemporary research and original examples to evidence new ways of thinking about street culture - from the favelas of Brazil to housing projects in the USA - the text locates street culture within its particular social, cultural and ecomic contexts. Covering diverse subjects from brutal violence to contemporary fashion it explores the ways in which street culture is intertwined with processes of social exclusion and inclusion. An in-depth and even-handed guide to understanding the practices, styles and struggles associated with a particular section of the socio-ecomically disadvantaged, this text stands as an invaluable resource for students and academics across a range of disciplines, including youth studies, urban studies, crimilogy, sociology, cultural studies and geography.
- Author BiographyJonathan Ilan is Lecturer in Criminology and Director of Studies for BA Criminology at the University of Kent, UK. He has researched youth cultures in Dublin and published numerous journal articles in the field of cultural criminology.
