About this title

Synopsis:

This book gives voice to the homeless youth and is rich with material on their everyday lives, including living conditions and street experiences. The case study's strength lies in its ethnographic methodology, which combines direct observations and qualitative interviews. Ethnography is particularly important in describing populations and social environments that are hidden from normal observation, and is indispensable when exploring emerging phenomena, such as the formative fictive kin networks among street youth, or new ways of looking at drug addiction. Finkelstein discusses her own experiences with the street kids, including how she was able to develop a rapport within the "street scene."

About the Author:

Marni Finkelstein is currently an adjunct professor John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and works as the Senior Research Associate Vera Institute of Justice, both in New York City. She received her doctorate in social/cultural anthropology from the New School for Social Research in 2001. Finkelstein also holds a Masters degree in journalism as well as social/cultural anthropology. The author spent two summers conducting field research in New York City and has included especially rich interview material and personal observations. As an anthropologist, her work focuses primarily on urban populations at risk. In addition to her research with street kids, she has conducted ethnographic studies on substance abuse, adolescence in the New York City foster care system, and victims of sexual assault. She lives, works, and teaches in New York City.

Store Description

Hello, welcome and thanks for visiting our Abebooks store! We are grateful for all our customers and will put your satisfaction 1st at every opportunity! If you're unhappy, please contact us direct and let our professional customer service department answer your concerns! We can be contacted directly at juggernautzbookz@gmail.com. Below we discuss a few of the finer details customers should understand before they order with us! Who are we? We are specialists in the used textbook business. Our mission is to offer college students lower priced options for their college textbooks by simply making more available online at super competitive prices! We think its a win-win versus ordering from the college bookstore or marketplaces direct, as students will save on average greater than 30% when comparing us to online marketplaces, and greater than 50% overall when comparing us to their college bookstores prices. If you support our mission of lower prices and greater options for college students, please leave us a 5/5 feedback! Shipping; Fast order processing is the key to our success! All orders ship from our warehouse within 1-2 business days so that you'll receive your item ASAP. (Abebooks allows sellers 2 business days to process orders before they start the clock on delivery expectations. We average 1 business day order processing or quicker. Please remember that holidays and weekends are not business days. We will often process orders on these days but we do not guarantee that. Also, the USPS and other carriers do not ship on Sunday so emailing and asking for faster shipment is impossible in these instances. It is normal for your package to take 1-2 business days to begin "tracking" once it ships.) Delivery Expectations; Standard delivery orders ($3.99 shipping charge) is 7-10 business days once an item ships (within 2 business days) but can take up to 21 business days to arrive. Please contact us if your item has taken longer than 21 business days to arrive. Priority/Expedited shipping orders ($6.99 shipping charge) is 2-6 business days once an item ships (within 2 business days) but can take up to 10 business days to arrive after shipment. Please contact us if you've ordered with priority shipping and your item has taken longer than 10 business days from the date of your "shipment notification" email. If you need an item faster than these delivery time-frames you will need to order directly from a marketplace or bookstore and pay their premium prices. We cannot ship an item any faster or guarantee the day it will arrive. Please do not order from us and then ask your item to be shipped quicker - as we cannot upgrade shipping once an order is placed and it is simply not economical for us, a small retailer, to ship an heavy item like a book any faster than our $6.99 shipping speed. Once an item has been scanned "delivered" by your carrier the item is considered in your possession and responsibility. Return Policy; We accept returns on unused/undamaged books for any reason within 30 days. We cannot accept returns on any standalone online access cards sold separately for any reason, and any item that has been used or damaged. Returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee, and original shipping is non-refundable. If we determine that we've made a mistake with your order we will at our discretion waive our restocking fee or issue a return shipping credit once your item arrives back to our warehouse for processing. We cannot issue prepaid postage on returns at this time. We cannot honor returns sent or requested outside/after our 30 day returns policy has expired. This is due to the nature of textbooks, which depreciate in value so rapidly. Because we offer our books at much lower prices than Amazon and the college bookstore, we cannot accept returns indefinitely, that's why we have a 30 day limit. Our return policy is online here, visible on our packing slip, and available if ever requested via email.
