"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This comprehensive guide is meant for parents, teachers, police, and community members who encounter gangs in their daily activities. Sachs, since 1978 a counselor and a probation officer at a Chicago juvenile detention center, first describes the history and evolution of street gangs. He explains the allure of gangs, detailing what causes kids to join and what might cause them to leave (if they can). Most important, using copious illustrations, Sachs describes "identifiers"?symbols, jewelry, graffiti, and specific styles of clothing. He details gang language, including a glossary of terms, and describes (with illustrations) hand signs. Sachs then explains what the family, schools, and other community agencies can do to limit the spread of gangs. He also describes various ways to help kids escape the gang world. Highly recommended as a resource guide of great value.?Sandra K. Lindheimer, Middlesex Law Lib., Cambridge, Mass.
