Description - Islands in the Street by Martin Sanchez-Jankowski
An examination of urban gangs, this book provides a new understanding of these underworlds of violence, defiance and criminal activities. Eating, sleeping, and sometimes fighting with gangs in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles, the author takes the reader inside a secretive world, giving gang members' own words as well as those of police, public officials, and community members who live among gangs.
