About the book:

People and Folks dispelled myths about gangs with solid groundbreaking research baed on in-epth interviews ith the founders and members of all of Milwaukee's street gangs.

Called 'the most insightful book ever written about inner-city gangs' by William Julius Wilson, the second edition presents new research challenging prevailing theories and assumptions about gang violence, drug use, cultural differences between the inner-city underclass and the suburban middle classes, and the role of gender. Of special interest is the author's new data on the underground economy in the inner city.
