MEDIA REVIEWS
"Offering an enhanced snapshot of the contemporary landscape of gangs from urban to suburban communities, independent scholar Kinnear captures the international spectrum of gang involvement...Recommended. Public, school, and academic libraries; all levels." - Choice
"Geared for high school students, but of equal value to college students studying the issue of gangs, the eight sections in this work provide an updated comprehensive view of resources available on all aspects of gangs worldwide. . . . Written so a high school student can understand but also at an interest level for college students, the brief entries are an excellent overview or starting point for further research on any aspects of gangs." - ARBA
