Presents problem-solving and suppression-based approaches that police agencies are using to address youth and gang violence. The 12 chapters emphasize the complexity of issues that surround gangs, and the need to expand thinking about how to respond more effectively. Most of the contributions are case studies of projects launched by large American cities, and are written by academics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
