Few would disagree that neighborhood and place are important dimensions of reentry from prison, but we have a less clear sense of why or how they matter--and we rarely get a view of the lived social-interactional dynamics between people returning from incarceration and receiving communities. Intersecting Lives focuses on the processes by which neighborhood and place influence reentry experiences, and how these processes shape community life. Through interviews and ethnographic observations, Andrea M. Leverentz brings readers into three very different Boston communities.
