Barrio Gangs: Street Life and Identity in Southern California - Vigil, James D

Drawing on many years of experience in the barrios as a youth worker, high school teacher, and researcher, this book identifies the elements from which gangs spring: isolation from the dominant culture, poverty, family stress and crowded households, peer pressure, and the adolescent struggle for self-identity.
