An up-to-date collection of the most insightful and influential research on gangs today, The Modern Gang Reader, Fourth Edition, brings together articles that discuss the prevalence, structures, and behaviors of gangs today and analyze society's responses to them.

With a strong focus on international and comparative research, this authoritative volume exposes students to the array of dissenting points of view that represent the ongoing controversies behind the nature of gangs.


Thirty-two new articles covering a variety of issues--gang desistance, reentry from incarceration, victimization, international gangs, and more

New sections throughout, including three devoted to better understanding the relationships between gang membership and racial inequality, gender, and community contexts

New introductions at the beginning of each section that provide conceptual links with other pieces in the anthology

Updated and expanded coverage of methodological strategies for studying gangs, the demographic characteristics of gang members, group processes within gangs, and other key topics
