Guns, Violence, and Identity Among African American and Latino Youth
Wilkinson (criminal justice, Temple U.) presents and analyzes the findings of a study of 125 violent adolescent males in two New York City neighborhoods and 306 violent or near violent events they experienced. She seeks to understand youth gun violence by examining the dynamic contextualism of urban neighborhoods; the influence of these social processes on socialization, social control, and behavior; and the role of guns in shaping norms and behaviors.
