This insightful collection contains the work of leading scholars, integrating previously published articles with new material to provide the most comprehensive information about the status of American youth gangs. The topics are grouped in four sections: The first section explores the issues and ramifications of current terminology and survey information. In the second section, nontraditional gangs, such as female gangs and hybrid gangs, are disucssed. The third section attempts to examine gang activities objectively and place them in a proper perspective. The final section looks at historical and current response techniques to youth gangs, such as suppression, prevention and legal injunctions.

"Joe Calendino fell in love with a life of organized crime and everything that came with the Hells Angels' lifestyle: money, drugs, power, women. As an outlaw biker living on the fringe of society, he traveled the world-from Vancouver to Vegas to Rio-relishing in the dangerous glamour of his full patch status. When unable to save his protector and mentor from a deadly shooting, Joe became more motivated to honour a hallowed chapter within the Hells Angels' organization: that of the Nomads Motorcycle Club, the "one percenters". In this world of drugs and debt, his family soon became a target and a tight noose of addiction began to rule his life. When a security video showing Joe flaunting his H.A. colours while brutally assaulting a man went viral on local and national news channels, the Hells Angels grew impatient with Joe's recklessness. They stripped him of membership and Joe spent his time in rat-infested crack houses, combing back alleys for anything that might help him get his next fix. It was not until his darkest hour-as he lay near death in a hospital bed-that Joe realised he could turn his life around through sobriety. With a mixture of positive strides and periodic backward steps, Joe recovered and re-defined himself as a community leader. He became the founder of an outreach organization that empowers youth at risk of involvement in drugs, violence and gangs. In 2014 he was awarded a Courage to Come Back Award, which is given to individuals who have overcome tremendous adversity in their lives and are now giving back to society. To Hell and Back recounts Joe's rock bottom days and road to recovery, as told by his trusted former high school counsellor, author and educator Gary Little. To Hell and Back is an unforgettable page-turning account of both trauma and redemption."-- Provided by publisher.
