It also includes theoretical discussions, case studies, and examinations of gang members' identities.
Abstract
Although they were originally considered an American phenomenon, Gangs today have grown and transformed into global enterprises. Despite these changes, criminologists have not yet reassessed worldwide Gangs in terms of the other changes associated with globalization. John M. Hagedorn aims to correct this oversight by incorporating important theoretical advances in urban political economy and understanding changes in Gangs around the world as a result of globalization and the growth of the information economy. Contrary to older conceptions, today's Gangs are international, are often institutionalized, and may be explicitly concerned with race and ethnicity. Gangs in the Global City presents the work of an assortment of international scholars that challenges traditional approaches to problems in criminology from many different perspectives and includes theoretical discussions, case studies, and examinations of gang members' identities. The contributors consider Gangs not as fundamentally a crime problem but as variable social organizations in poor communities that are transitioning to the new economy.
