Review:


"This book is classic Klein: engaging, thoughtful, and at times irreverent. If you are interested in gaining an appreciation for the current state of youth gang research and policy, I recommend this user-friendly monograph. Mac (as Klein is known) shares forty-plus years of scholarly research in a very readable format. For readers who have not had the pleasure of meeting Mac in person, this book will give you some insight into his humor along with his wisdom."--Finn-Aage Esbensen, University of Missouri-St. Louis


"This book reveals the remarkable career in gang research of Mac Klein. Told in his typically engaging style, he takes the reader on his journey through the twists and turns of charting what we know--and don't know--about street gangs in the U.S., and elsewhere. His work has had enduring impacts on our understanding of street gangs, and yet, as he shows in this book, there is still much to be learned."--Cheryl Maxson, University of California, Irvine


"Klein is the leading gang scholar--the gang guru. Chasing After Street Gangs summarizes his wealth of gang knowledge and is very clear on where we need to focus our energies in tackling the gang problem."--Melanie R. Nimmo, University of Winnipeg
