Book Review: Down, Out & Under Arrest: Policing and Everyday Life in Skid Row

Los Angeles Review of Books published a review by Jody Armour of the USC Gould School about a new book on policing on Los Angeles’ Skid Row.

“Forrest thus ends his brilliant and sobering ethnography on a hopeful note: through their pitched political battles with the powers-that-be, Skid Row residents are reclaiming their personal dignity, redefining their social reality, reconstituting their social identity, and vindicating their social existence,” Armour wrote.
