505 8  Epilogue: Writing the "Wrongs" of Fieldwork: Confronting 
       Our Own Research/Writing Dilemmas in Urban Ethnographics. 
520    In The Unknown City Michelle Fine and Lois Weis offer a 
       groundbreaking, theoretically sophisticated ethnography of
       the lives of young adults, ages 23 to 35, in two large 
       East Coast cities. Analyzing interviews with hundreds of 
       young people, Fine and Weis provide insights into their 
       startling and often harrowing experiences. A major focus 
       of the book is on the "fractures" in American society: how
       and why those of different races, ethnicities, and genders
       see the world - and each other - in very different ways. 
       From discussions of black men's ideas on the reasons for 
       inequality to domestic abuse among white working-class 
       women, we see the gulfs that impede attempts to simplify 
       the problems of young adults. We hear their views on 
       everything from the construction of "whiteness" and 
       affirmative action to the economy, education, and the new 
       public spaces of community hope. The Unknown City is sure 
       to shape many key debates about policy and community. Fine
       and Weis point to what should be done on the national 
       policy level and describe initiatives that serve as oases 
       of hope in our cities today.
