9781906307028: Gangs of Dundee

Dundee, like most cities throughout Britain, saw massive developmental changes when war ended in 1945. Housing schemes were built to alleviate problems with over-crowding. By the mid-60s however, these schemes were overrun by street gangs, growing ever more dangerous and troublesome. By the 1970s, the gangs ruled the streets of Dundee, and men knew better than to walk alone off their own turf. Most of the infamous gangs still survive, the Kirkton Huns, most bloody of all, continues to operate today, with younger men taking up the fight.

About the Author:

Born in 1967, Gary Robertson has lived and worked in Dundee all of his life. A factory man and self-confessed fitness fanatic, he also finds time to play the bagpipes in between family life. His love of writing, in particular poetry, has led him to performing regular live spots locally.Together with another Dundonian poet, Mark Thomson, he formed Tribal Tongues, a street poetry partnership characterised by energetic live performances. His first book "SAS 11 Days in 'Paradise'" tells of his experience taking part and eventually winning BBC2's SAS reality TV series 'Are you tough enough?'

Review:

'Dundee in the 1970s was a fearsome place where gangs ruled the city's schemes. Territory was everything and frequent, bloody battles were fought over turf.' DUNDEE COURIER
