I was surprised to see how thin the book was when I received it - I didn't look at the page count when I ordered it but I did peruse over the few reviews.
If you're interested in researching Chicago street gangs, this is worthy of your collection, however it is BY FAR not a consummate study. It is missing important points that even I know and I am by far any expert on the history of Chicago street gangs, albeit my hometown and the place I have lived most of my life. It is pretty void of important details - It is almost like an academic pamphlet for the topic. Buy a used copy or when it is at a cheap cost, as prices are always fluctuating.
It is not a how to solve all of our black youth gang problems.
Nor is it the result of the current crisis in gang relations.
Perkins writes from the perspective of a black inside to the gang phenomenon....."
[from the introduction by John R. Porter, Ph.D., Chicago, Illinois, 1987]
