Great news! “Selling crack in el barrio” is also one of my favurite ethnographies, It got awarded best course litterature one semester at Stockholm University where I study. I am really looking forward to reading this next one!

isnt ’selling crack in he barrio’ the book where Bourgois stands around and does nothing as one of his informants is battered with a baseball bat.
even though on the whole the ethnography is informative, I always thought part of it problematic and his work ethically problematic
