"The best departments are UCL, LSE and Cambridge. Then SOAS, Manchester, Edinburgh, Sussex, Goldsmiths, Durham and Oxford in no particular order. Very few places offer the chance to choose between or combine social and biological anthropology and…"

Elliot Liebow's Tally's Corner and Philippe Bourgois's In Search of Respect

Hi there, I'm a sixth-form student and I have decided to write an essay which draws on the findings of Philippe Bourgois and Elliot Liebow in the above texts, to look at inner-city poverty as well as class and ethnic segregation in the U.S in two places at two different times, to find the connections between the two and also look at the historical political economic similarities and changes which influence the life of the people in both studies. I was wondering if any of you who have read or…See More
