The Job You Could Get: Change in the Bike Messenger Community of New York City

 
9783659424007: The Job You Could Get: Change in the Bike Messenger Community of New York City

This book offers a fascinating account of the Bike Messenger world and how it changed over time, particularly as a result of the 9/11 attacks and the Bush crisis. The work is testimony of a thorough understanding of the relationships between major socio-political transformations and the marginalization of people who tend to be romanticized by outsiders but in fact are faced with shocking working circumstances. The author revealed a critical understanding of notions such as community and style, of the diversity of people in New York, and is a good narrator. (Supervisor feedback, 2013, Leiden University)
