The ethnography presented here searches for the parameters of São Paulo’s contemporary urban order. The Introduction presents the main argument of the book, its methods and chronology of urban transformations in São Paulo which led to the emergence of the ‘world of crime’. The author argues in favour of understanding São Paulo’s urban conflict through the formal notion of normative regimes, in contrast to the view, dominant in the academic literature, which still presents ‘urban violence’ as the opposite of the ‘modern order’ or ‘democracy’. Historically, and the metropolis of São Paulo is exemplary in this regard, these notions have always been intrinsically related.
