Race, Poverty, and Domestic Policy

Elijah Anderson

Yale University Press

This chapter examines violence and aggression in inner cities. The structure of the inner-city family, the socialization of its children, the social structure of the community, and that community's extreme poverty is seen to interact in a way that facilitates the involvement of maturing youths in the culture of the streets, in which violence and the way it is regulated are key elements.

Keywords:   violence, aggression, inner cities, poverty, youths, streets
