A History of Gangs

program date: 
Sun, 07/05/2009

 The origins and development of gangs is more complex than the stereotypes of them.  John Hagedorn has studied and hung out with gangs all over the world and written several books about them.  Here he talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about why there are gangs and how they sometimes morph into very different forms.  Hagedorn's work with gangs can be seen on his website GangResearch.net where you can find links to YouTube videos, podcasts, and Hagedorn's writings.
