Description - Vandal Squad by Joseph Rivera

Former member of the Vandal Squad - a New York police unit devised to protect the subway from hardcore crime and vandalism - Joseph Rivera recounts the days and nights spent in pursuit of the city's most notorious vandals. As the only book on graffiti told from the side of the law, it gives the reader new perspective on the fast-paced cat and mouse tales, presented alongside professional disregard within the department. Featuring unseen images and stories of graffiti's infamous Top 40, this is an unprecendented look at graffiti from the other side of the game.
