The secretive and underworld element of gangs creates many
questions about them and gang culture. What is a gang and what are
todays prevalent kinds? What problems exist currently? What are
real gang activities? What is being done about gangs and urban
violence? This book answers these questions and many more. Outlaw
motorcycle gangs, prison gangs, and street gangs are examined and
readers learn that most street gangs are loosely organized with no
hierarchy. Females make up nearly a sixth of the total gang
membership, and the average age of a gang member is seventeen or
eighteen years old. This authoritative book concludes with a
discussion of the strategies of prevention, intervention, and
suppression of gangs.
