"This is one of the most exciting and original ethnographic studies on drug dealing I have read in a long time. It is the German counterpart of classical American studies as Philip Bourgois' In Search of Respect or Elijah Anderson's Code of the Street. The setting is not an American ghetto but a Frankfurt neighborhood in an advanced German welfare state. Bucerius has drawn on her extensive fieldwork in the neighborhood of Bockenheim to present an ethnography that explains the lifestyles and social exclusion of a group of second generation immigrants with a Muslim background that are involved in drug dealing. Her enduring fieldwork in a combination with her theoretical lenses based on Pierre Bourdieu, Mary Douglas and Max Weber offer an explanation why these young men choose to become drug dealers. It is a stunning achievement written with civic involvement, as well with academic detachment and humor." --Godfried Engbersen, Professor of Sociology, Erasmus University Rotterdam"In the tradition of the best urban ethnographies, Unwanted provides an insightful look at the lives of second generation Muslim immigrant young men involved in Frankfurt's drug economy. Sandra Bucerius deftly navigates structure, culture, and agency, grappling with how macro-level forces in German society impact the lives of young men she describes as 'perpetual foreigners, ' and how their identity work constructs meaning in the face of marginalization and crime involvement. Unwanted illuminates unique features of the German context, while offering larger lessons for scholars who seek to better understand social exclusion and its impacts. It is an important and timely contribution." --Jody Miller, Professor of Criminal Justice, Rutgers University

An intelligent yet accessible book on immigration and the drug market in Germany 22. Oktober 2014
Von Katherine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I read Unwanted, along with several other ethnographies, for a university class. This book stood out because of its fascinating content and thoughtful analysis. Additionally, the book is clearly written and not bogged-down with jargon, and I recommend it for both academics and students, and for any persons interested in understanding more about immigration, crime, and/or the drug economy generally.

In Unwanted, Sandra Bucerius documents her experiences studying Muslim immigrant drug dealers in Frankfurt, Germany. While Bucerius sheds light on the structural aspects of German society and law (e.g., challenges to gaining citizenship; education system; etc.) that exclude the men she studied from the formal economy, the author also carefully manages to discuss the men's individual agency and decisions which shape their lives. Her analysis shows the connections between immigration, exclusion, and the drug economy.

The pieces in the book on how Bucerius built rapport and gained the trust of her informants are particularly interesting. Bucerius' tenacity and dedication as a researcher come through, and her experiences can be helpful for new ethnographers and researchers interested in studying populations that are difficult to access. Developing rapport with informants is one of the key challenges for ethnographers, and Bucerius' success at this is apparent as her informants trust her with both their personal and professional (i.e., drug dealing) lives. This allows the author to provide an in-depth account of the local drug economy and the rationale behind the men's decisions (e.g., how they go about finding wholesale dealers; how they determine pricing for their product; why they weren't willing to deal harder drugs, like heroin or cocaine; where they decide to sell drugs and to whom).

Although the study is set in Germany, clear parallels from Unwanted can be drawn to the experiences of marginalized groups in other countries, and this book is informative on how structural barriers can promote criminal activity in all Western nations.
Excellent new ethnogrpahy 30. Oktober 2014
Von Kevin Haggerty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I zipped through this book in two days. It is an excellent contribution to the revitalization of ethnographic research that we are seeing in Sociology and Criminology. Bucerius secured a remarkable level of research access to a group of street level drug dealers in Germany, and her insights on marginalization, gender, and identity will linger with the reader for years.
