Islands in the Street: Gangs and American Urban Society
"Vivid, lively, and yet theoretically informed, a triumph of patient and sustained fieldwork. . . . Jankowski presents the gang and its members not as pathological departures from social norms, but as shrewd and resourceful operators."--Michael Lipsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Islands in the Streetfills a wide gap in the literature on gangs. Jankowski's innovative model of gang participation and organization is important and elegant, guaranteeing that this will bethebook on gangs for the next ten years, if not longer."--Ruth Horowitz, University of Delaware

Really great info on gangs and totally readable. I might have even read it in my spare time if such a thing existed or ever will again. :) Read full review
Review: Islands in the Street: Gangs and American Urban SocietyUser Review - Dedrick - Goodreads
This was very engaging and clearly explained the culture of urban survival. While I am still disturbed by violence and crime, this book made it clear when gang related violence and crime will persist and when it can end. Read full review
