Northeastern | July 3, 1996 | English | ISBN: 1555532764 | 256 pages | PDF | 17 MB
Jeff Ferrell draws on his own extensive field research to thoroughly examine the practices of graffiti
artists. Focusing on the city of Denver, he takes a close look at the war against graffiti
and the interplay between cultural innovation and institutionalized intolerance, arguing that coordinated corporate and political campaigns to suppress and criminalize graffiti
writers further disenfranchises the young, the poor, and people of color.
