Summary
John Hagedorn explores the international proliferation of the urban gang as a consequence of the ravages of globalization. Looking closely at gang formation in Chicago, Rio de Janeiro, and Capetown he discovers that gangs have institutionalized as a strategy to confront a hopeless cycle of poverty, racism, and oppression and provides vital insights into the ideology and persistence of gangs around the world
