Description - The Cocaine Kids by Terry Williams

Since 1982, sociologist Terry Williams has spent days, weeks, and months hanging out with a teenage cocaine ring in cocaine bars, after-hours clubs, on street corners, in crack houses and in their homes. The picture he creates in The Cocaine Kids is the story behind the headlines. The lives of these young dealers in the fast lane of the underground economy emerge in depth and color on the pages of this book.
