Youth Gangs In American Society
Youth Gangs in American Society, by Randall Shelden, William “Bud” Brown, and Sharon K. Tracy “has become one of the most widely cited sources on the topic of gangs,” according to Todd Clear, professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
“No other book provides such a thoughtful, detailed investigation of gangs as does this popular text.”
The “comprehensive and widely respected survey of the literature on gangs and gang activities in America includes theoretical perspectives on why gangs exist, gang typologies, descriptions of gang activities, and various intervention strategies for dealing with gangs,” according to Amazon.com.
