Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Breaking down disciplinary boundaries, Sidewalk shows how books and magazines are received and sidewalkk in discussions among working-class people on the sidewalk; it shows how cultural knowledge is deployed by vendors and scavengers to generate subsistence in public space.

Shows how to make important links between micro and macro; how a research project works; how sociology can transform common sense. Sidewalk demonstrates the connections between culture and human agency and innovation; it interrogates distinctions between legitimate subcultures and deviant collectivities; it illustrates conflicts over cultural diversity in public space; and, ultimately, it shows how conflicts over meaning are central to social life.

Why this is so involves an intricate pas de deux between the street people and residents. While Duneier’s lens is academic, he shows real people behind the street masks.
