I ll start this off with a compliment Alice Goffman is a phenomenal writer She tells stories and weaves a narrative that paints a vivid image of urban poverty crime and the failings of the criminal justice system in a striking and captivating way and deserves credit for that This book reads uickly and is fairly enjoyable given the subject matterThe problem is in her methodology and the choices she made in writing this book Goffman is a sociologist and in spite of reading like it was written for a mass market audience this is putatively a social science research text Goffman almost completely lacks any kind of reflexive thinking about her own status identity and privilege relative to her research subjects She freuently includes gratuitous information about her informants without a clear connection to her arguments about mass incarceration and punitive police policies These details serve only to scandalize the reader at best and at worst they have the potential to reinforce negative racial stereotypes some readers may bring into reading this textAs a social science book On the Run lacks a clear theoretical framework Anyone familiar with research ethics who reads her almost 100 page methodological note at the end will recognize serious and glaring concerns that are largely unaddressed in the main text of the book Although the writing is phenomenal the book as a whole is deeply problematic and should be read critically Bruder Kemal used but it has nonetheless created a little known surveillance state in America’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods Arrest Řídících Márinka Řídících Márinka #3 uotas and high tech surveillance techniues criminalize entire blocks and transform the very associations that should stabilize young lives family relationships jobs into liabilities as the police かくれんぼハニー use such relationships to track down suspects demand information and threaten conseuences Alice Goffman spent six years living in one such neighborhood in Philadelphia and her close observations and often harrowin.
