About this book

Juvenile Offenders and Guns explores how and why twenty-five incarcerated young men of color acquired and used guns, and how guns made them feel. Guns have multiple meanings and serve many purposes for these youth as they attempt to construct a capable masculinity in their worlds, growing up in homes where money is often scarce and fathers absent.

Reviews

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2016

“The six well-written chapters detail how guns construct meaning and masculinity, create pathways for producing and consuming violence, and are perceived as a panacea for solving life’s hardships and inadequacies. An important read for scholars as well as practitioners interested in juvenile delinquency and crime. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” (P. J. Venturelli, Choice, Vol. 54 (3), November, 2016)


"This volume offers useful and original contributions. . . That this research purposively narrows its focus on young men and their varied relationships to guns is timely, revealing, and intriguing." - Laurie Schaffner, Associate Professor, Sociology Department, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
