Book Summary: Contents Introduction United States : Aryan Brotherhood, Barrio Azteca, Black Guerrilla Family, The Mexican Mafia or 'La eMe', Nazi Low Riders, Nuestra Familia, Tango Blast, Texas Syndicate.

'He who runs the inside controls the outside.' (Mexican Mafia prison gang saying) It is a world of murder, intimidation and extortion, a horrifically violent environment in which nothing matters, because, let's face it, for most of these men there really is nothing left to lose. How many life sentences can a man serve, after all? Existing in a world of mayhem and lawlessness, the prison gang is perhaps the ultimate in criminal organizations, its evil tentacles often reaching far beyond the prison gates. And prison gangs have become increasingly powerful in the criminal underworld in recent years. Rather than bring an end to gang members' ability to engage in criminal activity, incarceration has, perversely, provided them with the perfect environment in which to persevere with their nefarious activities. Prison Gangs: Organized Crime Behind Bars exposes the frightening world of the prison gang, the lives of men without morality who live in a world in which the rules by which we normally exist no longer apply.

Book Summary: When most people think of prison gangs, they think of chaotic bands of violent, racist thugs. Few people think of gangs as sophisticated organizations (often with elaborate written constitutions) that regulate the prison black market, adjudicate conflicts, and strategically balance the competing demands of inmates, gang members, and correctional officers. Yet as David Skarbek argues, gangs form to create order among outlaws, producing alternative governance institutions to facilitate illegal activity. He uses economics to explore the secret world of the convict culture, inmate hierarchy, and prison gang politics, and to explain why prison gangs form, how formal institutions affect them, and why they have a powerful influence over crime even beyond prison walls. The ramifications of his findings extend far beyond the seemingly irrational and often tragic society of captives. They also illuminate how social and political order can emerge in conditions where the traditional institutions of governance do not exist.

Book Summary: Throughout the history of the United States, gangs have existed in one form or another, from the violent thugs of old New York to the holdup gangs of the Old West and from Prohibition-era bootleggers to modern-day street gangs. Each type of gang has posed a serious problem for law-enforcement authorities. Police have developed numerous techniques for identifying gangs, tracking their activities, breaking up illegal rackets, and addressing the social issues that contribute to the formation of gangs. Gangs and Gang Crime details the history of criminal gangs and law-enforcement efforts to fight them, from the nineteenth century to the present.a
