about this item
Geoffrey Pearson, who died in 2013, was one of the outstanding social scientists of the post-WWII era. His work spanned social work, social theory, social history, criminology and sociology, and has had a huge impact upon studies of youth, youth culture and drugs. This collection of essays consists of scholars producing empirical work on some of the key areas upon which Geoff Pearson established his reputation, focusing upon urban ethnography, race and ethnicity, youth, and drugs. The result is a cutting-edge collection that takes readers into social worlds that are difficult to access and complex complex, yet utterly normal.
