The debate over the privatization of criminal justice services, especially of imprisonment, has featured prominently in the ongoing controversy over the proper scope and size of government. In the US, the record of private ownership has been bleak - ridden with political corruption, physical abuse of prisoners, and the single-minded pursuit of profits. Charles Logan here argues that this need not be the case.A systematic and comparative analysis of youth gangs and the youth gang problem in the United States, this book deals with hands-on issues of policy and programs, describing the strategies and techniques for dealing with gangs employed by criminal justice organizations, social agencies, schools, employment programs, and grass-roots organizations. Spergel combines empirical research, first-hand experience, and a solid theoretical base to expose the causes of the gangproblem. Importantly, he recommends strategies that deal with gangs at a community level, using both local and national interests and resources to provide gang members with structured social and economic opportunities. He suggests a variety of specific techniques for dealing with the problem andshows how and why existing strategies have gone wrong. A practical and testable approach to a serious social problem, The Youth Gang Problem is a must-read for government officials, researchers, university instructors, and for anyone concerned with the gang problem and how to alleviate it.
