My Califa’s Rehab Rangers booking number is YA-65544; I will never forget it. This is a first-hand narration of growing in the 1980’s and 1990’s around criminally infested streets of Los Diablos County, Califas. This autobiography describes a gang initiation, drug involvement, and twenty years of arrests for various low-level non-violent crimes. It is an adventurous entourage through police precincts and juvenile hall institutions leading to Los Diablos’ dreadful Twin Titans Corrective Facilities, including Califa’s Rehab Rangers. Eventually, we will visit the ever-controversial Immigration and Child Endowments’ holding camps tossing out legal and illegal immigrants with lifetime deportations ignoring all American-raised families. Part memoir, part inspiration—total human institutionalization and dehumanization, uncut. In addition, we will explore human life complexities within today’s state-of-the-art prisons and we will see men coping for survival with only their essential necessities to strive. Moreover, questions will abound about our innate free will, that is, are we indeed free from Big Brother? Is the separation of migrant families legal? This story may also serve as an academic reference to our technical legality of incarceration—and once inside, what are our constitutions protecting prisoners’ rights, or should they have any legal protections whatsoever. Indeed, we are forever cognizant that not everything under our sun is a ray of hope for every man; therefore, our daily challenge is to withhold those glorious constitutions that grant us universal liberty of choice. At our day’s end, literature is mind’s liberty.

Each with complications from childhood, five teenagers become united through a notorious street gang. Through their deep affiliation the members are set up for losses as they come face to face with the harsh realities and consequences of gang life. Will the teens remain close through their trial and tribulations that involve sex, pimping, money, murder and drugs; or will temptation be the cause of division amongst the crew when loyalties are questioned as they engage in violent retaliation against rival hoods causing near death experiences for some and fatalities for others, all while remaining systematically influenced by street conduct and sticking to the G-code. Come along for a ride through the streets of Los Angeles as these five individuals become intertwined within the overwhelming lifestyle of California’s gangland.

Is there a future for the law? In this book, Florian Grisel addresses one of the most fascinating questions raised by social scientists in the past few decades. Since the 1980s, socio-legal scholars have argued that governance based on social norms (or “private governance”) can offer an alternative to regulation by the law. On this account, private governance could be socially efficient and even optimal compared with other modes of governance. The Limits of Private Governance supplements this optimistic analysis of private governance by assessing the long-term evolution of a private order in the fishery of Marseille. In the last eight centuries, the fishers of Marseille have regulated their community without apparent means of legal support from the French state. In the early 15th century, they even created an organisation called the Prud'homie de Pêche in order to regulate their fishery. Based on archival evidence, interviews and ethnographic data, Grisel examines the evolution of the Prud'homie de Pêche and argues that the strong social norms in which it is embedded are not only powerful tools of governance, but also forces of inertia that have constrained its regulatory action. The lessons drawn from this book will appeal to academics, policy-makers and members of the general public who have an interest in the governance of our modern societies.

Using the tools of sociological theory, Robert Brenneman seeks to discover why a pot-smoking, gun-wielding "homie" gang member would want to trade in la vida loca for a Bible and the buttoned-down lifestyle of an evangelical hermano (brother in Christ) - and to what extent this strategy works for the many youth who have tried it.

This world is not a world where the lowest can live through easily. It’s needless this young man was born into it at its lowest point in New Orleans, Louisiana, where only the strong survived who were trained to murder the people closest to them as if it was common law for the good to die young. Growing up, he learned to stand his ground, and he did it alone. Year after year, the void in his heart became larger, and his hunger for love grew stronger as he searched through the mud for it, leaving him covered in disappointing associations with those of dirty intentions of breaking him down every time he appeared to them as if he was building himself up. As he attempted to make friends, it seemed as if he was being influenced to dig his own resting place in a life full of conflict, where the people he desired to love treated him as a spectacle only because they saw his quality, making themselves feel as if they were nothing. In his life, he realized that real things remain the same and that fake people, places, and things always change, leaving his heart filled with pain as God painted the picture vividly before his eyes.

HOMIES is a study of a group of African-American men from the west side of Chicago known as "homies." This study explains the communication & bonding between these men. It exposes the social contribution of their alternative reality & explores its rationality. Information gathered from about 20 homies describes two differing homie cultures: "book smart" & "street smart." Additionally, four themes emerge in this study: 1) "I am who you're not--the culture that gets defined becomes the one that is controlled; 2) "The 'hood' is my real home"--"homies" rarely travel physically or mentally from the confines of their neighborhood; 3) "We are alone together"--they have maintained & supported their roles as social outcasts; & 4) "We can't & if we could, we don't know how"--they have created a culture that isolates them from society as well as denies them the tools to adequately fight the system.

The present book is no ordinary anthology, but rather a workroom in which anthropologists and philosophers initiate a dialogue on trust and hope, two important topics for both fields of study. The book combines work between scholars from different universities in the U.S. and Denmark. Thus, besides bringing the two disciplines in dialogue, it also cuts across differences in national contexts and academic style. The interdisciplinary efforts of the contributors demonstrate how such a collaboration can result in new and challenging ways of thinking about trust and hope. Reading the dialogues may, therefore, also inspire others to work in the productive intersection between anthropology and philosophy.

What does it mean to be young, American, and white at the dawn of the twenty-first century? By exploring this question and revealing the everyday social processes by which high schoolers define white identities, Pamela Perry offers much-needed insights into the social construction of race and whiteness among youth. Through ethnographic research and in-depth interviews of students in two demographically distinct U.S. high schools—one suburban and predominantly white; the other urban, multiracial, and minority white—Perry shares students’ candor about race and self-identification. By examining the meanings students attached (or didn’t attach) to their social lives and everyday cultural practices, including their taste in music and clothes, she shows that the ways white students defined white identity were not only markedly different between the two schools but were considerably diverse and ambiguous within them as well. Challenging reductionist notions of whiteness and white racism, this study suggests how we might go “beyond whiteness” to new directions in antiracist activism and school reform. Shades of White is emblematic of an emerging second wave of whiteness studies that focuses on the racial identity of whites. It will appeal to scholars and students of anthropology, sociology, and cultural studies, as well as to those involved with high school education and antiracist activities.
