Wacquant, AJS (May 2002):  Wacquant, AJS (May 2002) Duneier replaces negative stereotypes of street vendors, panhandlers, and scavengers with inverted cardboard cutouts. Parochial, solely American view of urban poor close to his subjects with insufficient attention to larger sociological theoretical issues Mad scramble for accessible books on sexy topics Duneier’s response:  Duneier’s response Wacquant chooses to ignore the balanced portrayal of the good and bad behaviors of Sidewalk’s characters Ethnographers have tough choices to make in deciding how to present their findings and results. A major thrust of Duneier’s work has been to reveal the common elements of humanity.
