"Being Down" studies school violence comprehensively - linking school ethnography, policy analysis, and urban studies and encompassing city politics, racism, policing, and systemic and economic injustices in it's all-too-real portrait of youth violence in American society.

In addition to youth violence, the book examines federal policies and court cases that have shaped judicial and punitive responses to violence.
