MADDOCK, Robin. Our Kids are Going to Hell.

(London): Trolley Books, 2009.  First edition.  Large octavo.  Unpaginated.  Introduction by Iain Sinclair.  Maddock spent three years accompanying local police going about their work in Hackney, east London. His photographs uncovered both a seedy nocturnal narrative, meandering through a young, and often underage, world of drugs and crime, but also a wider perspective of society and its interactions with the law.  The images show a cast of characters on both sides of the law playing out their scenes with the mundane daily grind of a resigned and well-played ritual.  A near fine copy in wrappers. This example signed by the photographer.
