Calvin Morrill and Michael Musheno's Navigating Conflict: How Youth Handle Trouble in a High-Poverty School (University of Chicago Press, 2018) creatively brings a socio-legal perspective to bear on youth relational dynamics and safety in public education, an issue of pressing public importance. Based on sixteen years of ethnographic fieldwork and archival research spanning one hundred years, they take readers into a multiethnic and multiracial, high-poverty high school in the U.S. By applying a trouble-process perspective, they challenge the conventional, violent-centered focus in most studies of urban youth conflict, revealing the social ingenuity and resilience with which teens informally and peacefully navigate potentially strife-ridden peer trouble.
