    Book Review By O Ayes Jody Miller s Getting Played African American Girls, Urban Inequality, and Gendered Violence New York University Press, 2008 I wanted to read Getting Played without bias Although I m outside of the criminological discourse community, I have read enough scholarly works to be troubled by academia s oft unchallenged objectification of marginalized populations Mainly, I had trouble reconciling the book s intention to explore the understudied population of African American girls [...]

    it took me a long time to read this book, because it is written as a study for parties whom it frightens me to wonder i would recommend this book because it is familiar to drill subject matter that one is already familiar with but at times it was difficult to dissociate realizing this was written as a study for legal scholars to whom the nuances of these issues are probably entirely alien when i got over how depressing the general subject matter is, relayed through transcribed interviews of blac [...]

    This is a book that describes the cultural adaptations to structural inequalities found in urban poverty areas of St Louis based upon interviews with juveniles that live in the area Feminist approach that does not offer a lot of insights into how these areas arrived at this condition, but a good book that describes the condition as it exists.
