"This book makes a number of important and new contributions to our knowledge of gangs and is extremely timely. Among its major contributions is its balance in attention to both male and female gangs, and a view gang behavior over three generations which affords insights into changes and continuities in gang activity that are just not available elsewhere." --William Kornblum, Professor of Sociology, City University of New York Graduate Center
