"Bob McNamara has done a remarkable job of capturing the character and complexity of the street life of Times Square hustlers--a difficult and hard to reach deviant environment to be sure. Throughout, he not only tells their fascinating story, but goes further to examine the relations between hustlers, the hustled, and those who facilitate the entire process. A well-written account, his result should be read by all who are interested in the subject, the difficulties of ethnographic research, or the interactions between deviance (crime) and the environment in which it occurs."-Dennis Jay Kenney, Ph.D. Associate Professor, University of Nebraska at Omaha Director of Research, Police Executive Research Forum
