Examination of the aftermath of two crimes that occurred in Sydney's south-western suburbs in 1988 and were blamed on Lebanese gangs - the murder of 14-year-old schoolboy Edward Lee and the drive-by shoot-up of the Lakemba Police Station. Critically analyses the media, political and police responses to these cases, drawing on the disciplines of economics, sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies. Assesses the complexities of ethnicity, racialisation, youth and crime. Includes tables and figures, endnotes, references and index. Authors are academics in the fields of economics, cultural studies, sociology and education.
